(See attached Pictures) A Road Show took place on the 24th and a Family Funfair for families on the 25th with the theme "Creative Activities as Antidotes to Bullying.
Challenges faced in implementation
Anti Bullying programmes ate not yet much accepted by people. Some prospective sponsors think it is too elitist and foreign. Hence we were faced with financial challenges in its implementation. However, the programme had to be scaled down to suit available funds .
Next steps
To further raise awareness on the need to curb Bullying in schools and Communities as a tool to curbing Violence,, we will be starting a 13week TV Talk Show which is expected to go on for as long as the need arises We also will start the zonal awareness by geographical location soon. Unfortunately, we cannot do this alone. Hence, we are calling on Philanthropists and Organizations that may wish to support our Cause. We believe that curbing Bullying will go a long way to curb Violence in Africa. The earlier we nipped the bullying tendencies in our future generations, the safer our Countries and Continents will be!
