Anijie Global Foundation Leads SDG4 To Invest In Students Of Don Bosco Catholic’ B’ JHS In Winneba In Ghana.
Anijie Global Foundation embarks on its annual quality education tour that has empowered lives to promote formal and vocational training with more than 6000 beneficiaries of women and youth across Ghana in the Central Region of Ghana.
Basic Education though enrolment has made significant progress in Ghana, learning achievements still need to grow. Quality education should not be a luxury limited to the privileged few but a fundamental human right. Prioritisation of Education is essential to accelerate progress toward all the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) against the backdrop of a global recession, growing inequalities and the climate crisis.
Anijie Global Foundation, an NGO leading SDG4 in Ghana, set out on the fifth edition of UNESCO International Day of Education on the theme Invest in People; Prioritize Education to empower pupils of Don Bosco Catholic’ B’ JHS in Winneba. They enlightened the students on unlocking their potential to be change makers and innovators and take the lead in achieving global priorities through their career mentorship and SDGs advocacy programme.
They also launched the Anijie Global SDGs club comprising five students instilling female and youth leadership, proving that girls can take leadership and advance the gender equality gap in Ghana.
Comfort, the president of the newly formed SDGs club, said, “I am excited to learn a lot from this foundation, especially Gender equality and Climate action, and I will use my leadership to promote the SDGs in our school and community.”
The organization also donated exercise books as part of their 5000 nationwide exercise books donation in various schools and marginalized communities in Ghana to promote inclusive and equitable lifelong learning opportunities for all.
The headmistress, Ms Magdaline Tuuli, commended Anijie Global Foundation for making the SDGs accessible for all, leaving no one behind and tasking the students as stewards to take the initiative to make progress in the nation.
This organization’s annual initiative the first time was introduced in the central region on January 24th, 2023 at the DON BOSCO CATHOLIC’ B’ JHS but has been embarked in over 40 schools in Greater Accra, Eastern, and Ashanti and is soon to be undertaken in every part, especially in rural and marginalized communities in Ghana.
Anijie global foundation calls on government leaders, representatives, youth activists and groups, stakeholders, policymakers, NGOs, organizations and individuals to take sustainable actions to promote quality formal education and vocational training.
