University of Abuja | Abuja, Nigeria | Advancing SDG 13 & UNAI 3


" I have always been passionate about the SDGs since the club was introduced to my highschool for the first time in 2016. There I met like minded students like me who made me realize there is a lot I didn't know about the world.
It will be amazing working together again and working with other Fellows to learn more about parts of the SDGs that I'm not not conversant with yet. This is going to be so exciting. "
