Inside the Villa
The United Nations have stressed that by 2030, over 200 million children will still lack access to education. These estimates were made prior to the COVID-19 pandemic which propelled the world into unprecedented times. As the unprecedented slowly becomes precedent, the initial estimates have changed. Financial insecurity has exacerbated, and low-income families have been disproportionally impacted by the outbreak.
At Setovilla, we recognise how economic disparities can affect a child’s right to learn, so we are on a mission to make learning and the route to employment more accessible and enjoyable, regardless of your socio-economic background.
We do not exist to replace traditional forms of education. We exist to support children and young people as they start to think about what success truly means to them. We believe that every child or young person has the right to succeed no matter of their academic abilities or economic backgrounds.
A wise one once said: when I grow up and become rich "I will make a playground in my house and call it Setovilla"…and that’s exactly what we’re here to do! Welcome to Setovilla, our playground for success.
We are on a mission to help children and young people succeed! We sell ọkọ̀ drinks online and in-store, pledging 60% of our profits to improve education and employability skills for young people from low socio- economic backgrounds. We launched in July 2021 and in the next 5 years, we aspire to distribute 500 Setobags (educational kits, each valued at £50) to children in need around the world. Also, we aspire to engage an additional 250 young adults to support their pathways into work through CV clinics and workshops. We exist to make education and employment more attainable for disadvantaged children by giving them the basic tools to excel. As a brand, we support the UN's Sustainable Development Goals and are committed to:
Reduced Inequalities (Goal 10) – reducing inequalities, especially amongst children and vulnerable young adults.
Climate Action (Goal 13) – taking urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts by building a more sustainable world.
