At the start of 2016, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) launched a global competition, made possible thanks to a grant from the Women’s Association of Verizon Employees. Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the globe were asked to use technology to design an innovative solution for their community and help achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Entries closed in September – and it’s now time to reveal the winners.
The objective of the “One UN” is to improve the impact, coherence, efficiency, effectiveness and positioning of the UN system in Kenya to enable it better assist the country to meet the MDGs and Vision 2030. This will be achieved through One Programme, One Budgetary Framework, One Office, One Leader and Communicating as One.
