Erel Onojobi

I am passionate about three things:-

  • The endless possibilities that STEM brings to inspire young people to reach their potential and make significant changes to the world! 
  • Ensuring that children and young people are ready for the challenges of the future, which can be met uniquely and creatively through STEM.
  • The transformative nature of STEM – the children I work with are some of the most deprived and disadvantaged in London.  However, by inspiring them, widening their horizons and providing fantastic opportunities, their lives, their families and their communities can be changed for the better.

I believe that Solutions For the Planet not only encompasses all of these passions but is an enabling platform that turns them into reality.”

Erel is has worked with children and young people for over 18 years. She has worked in various voluntary sector roles including youth, financial inclusion, advocacy and advice, as well as in the corporate sector.

She also loves to make a difference in her community, setting up organisations such as Little STEMs which promotes STEM in primary schools and Set Fashion Free, a fashion, culture and enterprise programme for young people. When she isn’t working on some new project, Erel is very active in her local church and raising two energetic boys!
