NGYouthSDGs Receives an Institutional Funding Support from Alan and Babbe Sainsbury Charitable Trust

[Yaba, Lagos] – Nigeria Youth SDGs (NGYouthSDGs) registered as the Network of Youth for Sustainable Initiative is thrilled to announce that it has received funding support from the UK-based Alan and Babette Sainsbury Charitable Trust. This funding will enable NGYouthSDGs to accelerate its mission of empowering young Nigerians to take meaningful action on climate education and foster sustainable development in Nigeria.

The Alan and Babette Sainsbury Charitable Trust is renowned for its commitment to supporting initiatives that address pressing global challenges led by indigenous communities. We are extremely grateful for their generous support, which will enable NGYouthSDGs to make a significant impact in addressing climate change through education and youth empowerment.

With the funding provided by the Alan and Babette Sainsbury Charitable Trust, NGYouthSDGs will develop comprehensive training programs designed to equip young Nigerians with the knowledge, skills, and resources necessary to become climate education advocates and leaders. This initiative aligns perfectly with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly Goal 13 – Climate Action.

NGYouthSDGs firmly believes that education plays a vital role in empowering individuals to become catalysts for change. Through this program, young Nigerians will receive specialized training focused on climate science, sustainable practices, and effective communication strategies. This will enable them to engage their communities, raise awareness, and drive meaningful action towards climate resilience and sustainability.

This will not only enable NGYouthSDGs to reach a wider audience but will also strengthen and expand our network of climate education advocates. We aim to create a ripple effect of knowledge, action, and impact across Nigeria, nurturing a generation of young individuals who are passionate about shaping a sustainable future.

NGYouthSDGs would like to express heartfelt gratitude to the Alan and Babette Sainsbury Charitable Trust for their trust and support. This funding will be instrumental in fostering climate education and empowering young Nigerians to become champions of sustainable development.
