The month of October saw an increase in students’ participation in knowledge transfer through peer-to-peer activities on the modules they have learned from the Leadership and Community Development Programme. This was done through sensitizations on assembly venues and during social activities and club meetings of the various schools across the 15 public secondary schools in the 5 LGAs the programme is being implemented.
The LCD students also marked the “International Day of the Girl Child” in a grand style by creating awareness of the rights of women and girls on October 11th. Consequently, two LCD mentees – Chukwu Amarachi and Abdurrahman Hassan, were featured on the radio discussing their personal experiences on the LCD programme and the impact it has had on them, while also creating awareness and advocating for support for girl child education and rights.
It is such great motivation to see the impact of our Leadership and Community Development Programme play out in the lives of these changemakers.
This year’s LCD Programme is proudly supported by ACT Foundation.
