To create a sustainable world where peace and justice thrives, all individuals must be equipped with values, relevant skill-set and heightened awareness (UNESCO 2014). The Sozo Networks was founded in 2015 in response to the anticipated youth bulge in Africa, to empower youth to combat the critical challenges facing them and pursue the aim of the global action program (GAP) on education for sustainable development – which is to generate and scale up action at all levels and areas of education and learning to accelerate progress towards sustainable development.
Sozo Networks is a non-profit organization that trains and empowers young people through experiential training on social change, conferences, ideas incubation programs, volunteering amidst other educational and professional development opportunities. We lead an ecosystem of young social change leaders, providing solutions to some of Nigeria’s most critical problems through civic leadership and social entrepreneurship.
Our programs have reached hundreds of young Nigerians who have gone on to implement successful high impact projects. Our alumni are transforming Nigeria’s socio-economic landscape through their local level work and leadership on diverse development projects.
