United Nations Association of Nigeria (UNAN) celebrates UNAN DAY 2022 With Executive Committee Inauguration and Fundraising Event for the fulfilment of 5 key Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are anchored on transforming lives through 5 powerful drivers—People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership, in a bid to combat humanity’s greatest challenges of poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.
It is therefore UNAN’s quest to aid this blueprint to achieve a better and sustainable future for all and to enjoin all and sundry to take action with social responsibility for one another starting with disadvantaged areas and people in Lagos State.
According to UNAN’s President, Mrs Joan Agha, “We are already in the 7th year of this Masterplan since UN declared the 17 SDGs in 2015. Our role therefore is to solicit support from partners, collaborators and benefactors in improving lives through SDG 1, 2, 6 and 8 which state thus:
– No Poverty

We cordially invite you to be a major participants in ushering in a new era of co-operation and prosperity with the inauguration of the key drivers of this project which event will benefit Lagos State citizens as inaugural beneficiaries.
