The Muhammad Sanusi II Sustainable Development Goals Initiative has announced a $10,000 grant for teachers across sub-Saharan Africa.
This was as it called on teachers across sub-Saharan Africa with innovative educational projects to apply for the 2023 MSII SDG Challenge.
The challenge is open to practising teachers based anywhere in sub-Saharan Africa for exclusive access to mentoring, training, and relevant networking opportunities.
A statement by the organization on Thursday stated that the programme is aimed at enabling teachers to develop scalable education projects and assist in developing innovative community projects focusing on quality education and gender equality.
The statement read, “Application for Cohort 3 of the MSII SDG Challenge is now open to teachers who believe that education is the key to innovation and are passionate enough to develop solutions that improve the African education system for the better.”
The statement noted that teachers selected to participate in the MSII SDG Challenge will receive an initial grant of $2,000 for their projects, go through a comprehensive incubation programme and will be further considered for a follow-up grant of up to $10,000 and an accelerator opportunity.
In addition, all accepted teachers will acquire access to the 1 million teachers platform, a unique platform with access to high-quality teaching resources to boost their project and teaching outcomes.
It added, “Interested participants can apply for Cohort 3 of the MSII SDG Challenge by visiting www.msiisdg.org. The deadline for submission of applications is May 20, 2023.”
