Challenges faced in implementation
Our major challenges as remain funding, all we have been doing since Oct 5th , 2016 has been without sponsors, but our passion and commitment keep us going. Government and Private sectors have not really key in the process so getting needed support from them are not granted. Getting acceptance from schools, parents youths are not easy.
We have in place 5 committees that are working on achieving our set objectives.
THEY ARE WELL INFORMED ABOUT SDGs AND GETTING MORE INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS IN THEIR VARIOUS COUNTRIES.
