The people! Social entrepreneurship communities are wonderful, having accomplished incredible impact both in your own local communities and globally – positively affecting the lives of others. There is not a week that goes by that we do not meet new social innovators that I had been teaching about for the last 20 years at university – wow I am learning from them first hand. Addressing long-term systemic challenges to address the SDGs is a tough challenge. By harnessing the collective knowledge of members and collaborating, we can co-create a new future that is more equitable and just.

To promote Sustainable Development Goals among learners through STEM education. Therefore enabling them to transform their classroom learning into STEM solutions that address challenges facing sustainable living and growth. Quality education is the cornerstone to achieving sustainable goals and connecting learners in different countries through STEM sustainable development goals-based competitions allow them to share their throughs and engage in discourse around sustainability which promotes collective consciousness.
Our vision is to build a world where individuals and communities can have access to a sustainable, prosperous and happy life. We aspire to create a sustainable system that provides economic opportunities and promotes livelihoods by empowering the community with the knowledge and tools necessary to succeed. We envision a world where social entrepreneurship and organic farming connected with eco-tourism is a significant contributor to sustainable development, creating a positive impact on the environment, society, and economy.
We are working on increasing the capacity of women farmers, creating agri-entrepreneurs(Women & Men,
I am motivated to become part of Catalyst 2030 because I see a lot of inequality in the world, in my workplace, in my country of origin, country of work and country of residence. I believe that involving men in advancing women's cause is the best solution to inclusion, equity and diversity. As the Executive Director of Arise From Ashes, I am one of those on my team who advocate for the protection and empowerment of the less privileged, the marginalized - our first project was a tailoring and fashion design school for women in an underpriveleged community in Liberia. Since then, we created an agro-ecology farm where we have already integrated 26 Rural Women as beneficiaries. We also offered land to a High School where 60 students (male and female) will practice agro-ecology. I am also the Chairperson of the Liberian Women Empowerment Network in Europe. In collaboration with Arise From Ashes, we began a program for 20 young women to attend a vocational training center where they are now learning different skills that will lead them to independence: catering, graphic design, computer science, hotel management, cosmetology and auto-mechanic. I find Catalyst to be the best place because it provides network opportunities - it is only when we join forces that we can achieve the 2030 SDGs on diversity, equity and inclusion. I look forward to working with other NGOs in Catalyst to make this happen. Thank you for this beautiful concept.
As I'm a Journalist and Lecturer in the area of Active and Healthy Longevity and an activist against ageism, taking part at the StopIdadismo Movement in Portugal, I'm extremely motivated to be part of Catalyst in order to join forces to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS) by 2030.
I am passionate about making Global impact to my community, the World at large, especially to the vulnerable populace and help ensure that the impact of Climate Change is been mitigated and eventually lead to an end to the era of Fossil fuel as we embrace Renewable Energy and achieved the SDGs Goals with focus on SDG Goal 1, 3, 4, 5, 13, and 17).

The surge of infectious diseases in Nigeria, Africa, and other countries in the world continues to occur due to Research, Data, biotechnological, and health policy recommendations weak to tackle these challenges that cause a huge threat to most communities, especially in West African communities like Nigeria where disease outbreaks are more occurrences thousands of lives are often lost every day this membership grants me opportunities to learn from and collaborate with diverse International stakeholders and experts in the global health industry to connect, and gain a better understanding of critical interventions needed to address these challenges, by putting an end to the excruciating health decay caused by the infectious diseases.
