SMART is an acronym for Selfless Mavericks Arousing Radical Transformation. The word ‘Gang’ represents a collection of people who are coming together to achieve a particular goal or interest. We are a community of young people who are defying the odds and rising above the _mes to consciously and selflessly taking actions to provide solutions to issues in our communities using innovative and sustainable approaches in health, education, capacity building and leadership.
It is in contribution to the actualisation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, specifically Goals 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 17 which are; NO POVERTY, GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING, QUALITY EDUCATION, GENDER EQUALITY, CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION, DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH, AND PARTNERSHIP FOR GLOBAL GOALS.
At SMART-Gang, we believe more in becoming the change we desire to see rather than folding arms to destructively criticise the government. Of course, the government can never and will never do everything for her citizens, hence, we are building a community of young people who think in the direction of what they can do for themselves and the society, and not what the government can do for them.
