‘Catch Them Young Initiative’- Pilot Phase
This project is focused on using storytelling to educate young Nigerians on the meaning of corruption and its impact on society. We use books to teach children about the real costs of corruption. Our goal is to get as many schools as possible (both public and private schools) to adopt anti-corruption books as a part of their civic education teaching. We will also advocate for anti-corruption education to be included in the curriculum of primary schools.
In 1 year of operations, we trained 1640 students on the dangers of corruption and ways to tackle it using innovative tools. 65 of which are out of school children. Our vision is to see to it that every Nigerian child has access to educative tools on anti-corruption. See more details in the infographic.
