Social Good Summit 2019 Call for Applications

Oct 29, 2019

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in collaboration with the Ministry of Youth Affairs, National Youth Commission and supported by key private sector partners hold an annual event dubbed the National Youth Innovation Awards. This event is the Sierra Leonean version of the global Social Good Summit (SGS) convened to help inspire more actions toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Award showcases young people’s ideas, creativity and use of technology to solve local community development challenges. This year’s event will be the 6th edition held in Sierra Leone. The problems facing Africa’s youth cannot be over emphasized. Sierra Leone like most African countries has a youth bulge population, majority of whom are unemployed and confronted with varying levels of deprivation/marginalization. Indeed, in previous summits the participants showcased the realities of the development challenges they face as individuals and as communities. The results also attested to the diverse innovative talents waiting to be tapped amongst the youth in Sierra Leone. Moreover, the overwhelming response from applicants demonstrates the readiness of young people to take a steering position to solve their own problems and contribute to nation-building.
