LGCF unites with other CSOs to lend its voice to the advancement of the SDGs at the United Nations Civil Society Conference in Kenya

Legend Golden Care Foundation (LGCF) team joined over 4,000 activists, advocates, and influential voices from around the world at the United Nations Civil Society Conference in Nairobi, Kenya, to share solutions for a better future.

Representing LGCF, our Executive Director, Mrs Kanayo Olisa-Metuh, and our Program Manager, Patricia Akor, attended the #2024UNCSC, where they called on governments to protect and expand civic space to ensure grassroots engagement in the 2030 Agenda.

Throughout the day, our team actively participated in focus group sessions, sharing their ideas and solutions with the diverse array of civil society organizations present at the conference. As an organization committed to promoting peace, justice, and accountable institutions, we recognize the vital role that civil society plays in ensuring accountability for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Executive Director, in her submission during one of the sessions, stated, “The end game of the UN SDGs is that no one should be left behind, and I dare say that by 2030, most of the global south will be left behind. We can’t take away the importance of the community. We are talking about parts of the future; it will be meaningless if we don’t make any impact. How are we going to make that impact? Is there a way we can come up with different coalitions across various thematic areas so that by the time we leave here, we’d know we are leaving with something tangible?”

Truly, it was an incredible experience at the #2024UNCSC in Kenya. We’re grateful for the opportunity to contribute and learn, and we’re excited to continue driving the 2030 Agenda forward.
