His Highness Muhammad Sanusi II (HH MSII) SDG Challenge 2023 for African Teachers ($2,000 grant)

Application Deadline: May 20, 2023

Muhammad Sanusi II Sustainable Development Goals (MSII SDG) Initiative is calling on every teacher across sub-Saharan Africa with innovative educational projects to apply for this year’s MSII SDG Challenge.

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. This programme is aimed at enabling teachers to develop scalable education projects.

Our aim is to catalyze and assist teachers in developing innovative community projects focusing on SDG 4 – Quality Education, and SDG 5 – Gender Equality. The Challenge is open to practicing teachers based anywhere in sub-Saharan Africa providing a platform for exclusive access to mentoring, training, and relevant networking opportunities to make a
lasting impact.

His Highness Muhammad Sanusi II, 14th Emir of Kano & UN Advocate of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in partnership with 1 Million Teachers launched the annual MSII SDG Challenge in 2021. The aim of this challenge is to catalyze and empower teachers in developing innovative community projects focusing on SDG 4 – Quality Education, and SDG 5 – Gender Equality.

The HH MSII SDG Challenge aims for the provision of high-quality, gender-responsive education to students – particularly girls – in the most deprived regions of the world. We do this by empowering teacher-changemakers with the skills, networks and resources they need to lead innovative and impactful community-based projects.

The HH MSII SDG Challenge will unleash the vast untapped potential of Africa’s teachers, by combining their on-the-ground expertise with a dynamic, entrepreneurial support system.

The Challenge is more than an incubator or an accelerator – it is an ecosystem catalyst. By providing expertise, resources and support for teachers at various stages of their leadership journey, the Challenge will nurture a grassroots movement of teacher-changemakers.

  • 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 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.
MSII Incubator Program

In the Incubator, you will be provided with in-depth and hands-on skill-building opportunities that will equip you with the foundation to lead your own social venture. You will be exposed to concepts related to leadership and personal mastery, sustainable business model design, and the management of projects, organisations and movements. If selected for Incubation, you will be awarded up to $2,000 USD to support the development of your own lean pilot program.
