Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

In relation to SDG 3, the Achievements recorded are: a. The students understood the negative health implications of obesity and benefits of healthy nutrition and physical activity. After the talk on Obesity, they drew illustrations on obesity, health consequences and ways of prevention to reinforce their understanding of the topic. b. They admitted willingness to cooperate with caregivers in accepting healthy diet. c. The teachers understood the need to emphasize healthy nutrition in curriculum and ensure that students are physically active in school. After the sessions, the teachers requested to have their body mass index (BMI) calculated too and were counseled accordingly. d. After the sessions, the students without prompting jogged and ran around the school premises. This showed their understanding of the need to be physically active. e. The height, weight and body mass index (BMI) of the students were calculated amd interpreted using the Center for Disease Control (CDC) BMI chart for male and female children. The results were not disclosed to other students and a written report with recommendation was addressed in a sealed envelope to their caregivers. To evaluate the success of our project, obese children identified in a school will be encouraged to measure and record their weights daily for one month. This will be done alongside healthier diet plans and physical activity. Their body mass index (BMI) will be calculated by the team at a followup visit to the school one month after the outreach. Their progress will be documented and appraised. The most inspiring student among all obese children identified in a year will be appointed a Tackling Obesity Ambassador for the next year and through this will raise more awareness about Obesity.

Sustainability and future plans

The project is currently being managed by a Group called Tackling Obesity Group. We intend to expand into an established organization with volunteers after successfully carrying out initiatives over the period of one year. The group is made of Six (6) Active Global Youth Citizens who are passionate about influencing change in the community. Our disciplines are Crop production and protection (Undergraduate level), Animal Science (Post Masters level), Human Nutrition and Dietetics (Post Masters level), Medicine and Surgery (Undergraduate level), European studies -Russian (Graduate level) and Physiotherapy (Graduate level). We intend to partner with already existing organizations that are involved in community-based projects targeted at achieving the sustainable development goals. This will we do while we sort out logistics of calling for application for volunteers and sponsorship. We also intend to extend the Tackling Obesity Project to other target groups in the community so as to create enough awareness about dangers of obesity. As the project gains widespread acceptance and sustainable achievements we hope to launch new projects without compromising the success.

Your profile as an entrepreneur

I am a medical student passionate about ensuring the community enjoys good health. I am a public speaker and advocate for female empowerment. I am also an Open Access Advocate and a local exchange officer of the Nigeria Medical Students (NiMSA) Standing Committee on Research Exchange (SCORE). I am twenty-five and strive for excellence in all activities while ensuring that I make an impact on lives as I do. My activities are driven by desire for an inclusive world - a global community with sustainable achievements. I am unrelenting in my search for knowledge; knowIedge is power. I support the Climate Tracker Break free campaign and I published an article in April 2016 on the University of Ibadan Union of Campus Journalists website for this campaign. As a result, I was shortlisted for one of the slots for the COP 22 conference. I engaged in the Microsoft/AYECI DigiGirlz Career Day this year in March. I educated community residents about Autism during the 2016 GTBank Autism Awareness Walk on the World Autism Day in April. I have administered questionnaires, assisted in data interpretation and presented results of two group researches - Quality of life and Social Support in the elderly in Igboora community in Ibadan (2015) and Preference for cosmetic gynaecological scars of Women in University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan (2016). I emerged the first runner up in an Oratory competition organized by the University of Ibadan Medical Students' Association in 2012. I have been elected Honourable member of the House of Assembly of my Hall of residence twice and was awarded a Legislative Silver Award in June 2016 in appreciation of my outstanding service to the Hall Assembly.

obesity can be hereditary and as well be influenced for food intake. Your project is of relevance today and of course will impact the future wellbeing / life expectancy in Nigeria.
In fact, most NGO will partner with your group if you collate reliable statistics of overweight children in schools as a technique to draw attention of stakeholders including UNICEF and international donors
