According to the UK design council, only by combining scientific methods with creative thinking will we develop novel ideas that genuinely improve people’s lives. Capitalizing on the skills of our numerous volunteers in the creative space, through this initiative, we create Informative, Educative and Communicative (IEC) materials including phone apps, videos, that drive conversations around the root causes and challenges to the education of the average Nigerian child.
Some of our creative works include:
276 girls were abducted from a school in Chibok in northern Nigeria on the 15th of April 2014, by the Islamist terrorist group called ‘Boko Haram’. In spite of the Hashtag activism pioneered by renowned personalities such as the First Lady of the United States-Michelle Obama over 400 days later, the Chibok girls were still missing.
We ‘kidnapped’ the shoes of worshippers in some Mosques across Lagos to reignite conversations around the matter, while also increasing pressure the Government to intensify efforts to secure the safe return of the girls.
To mark the 500th day the 276 girls were kidnapped from their school by the Islamic terror group Boko Haram, this campaign was launched as a reminder of our numbness to the plight f these school children.
The aim was to reignite the cry for the government to intensify efforts for securing the safe return of these girls
It was now over 600 days and the 276 Chibok girls who were kidnapped from their school on April 15th, 2014 had not been released. We launched this campaign to occupy the bills of policy makers as a way of getting their attention and to serve as a further reminder that efforts to secure the safe return of these girls should continue.
It was now 1,000 days since the 276 girls were kidnapped from their school in Chibok, Northern Nigeria. While some had been released, we felt the need to launch the campaign to continue the conversations and advocacy for the rest of the girls to be returned.
