The project with the clear objective was deigned to inspire young Africans to take responsibility for the development of the continent.
It was organized in Paikon-Kore community, Gwagwalada Area Council of the federal capital territory, where JCI Aso (The local organization implementing the project is domiciled). The project which came up at the Junior Secondary School, Paikon-kore was targeted at the students who is believed to be the future of the continent.
We had gotten an approval from the administrators of the school earlier, and on the 14/3/2019, we had the direct campaign with the students, and encouraged them with the responsibility and expectations for the continent.
Pledge cards were used as illustration and designed to address SDGs 3,5,9&10. An instagram frame in the shape of Africa was produced, also to aid the campaign.
