The Children’s Awareness Initiative™ was launched on 23rd May, 2019 as a hallmark of the strong commitment of Live Abundantly!® to impact young lives through awareness and education™. The manifesto is to enhance the social education of students on the prevalence and consequences of ubiquitous social issues such as inequality, violence, human trafficking, irregular migration, child labour and exploitation, bullying, drug abuse, cultism and poor health which negate human rights, personal development and hinder the ability to live to one’s fullest potential. These critical social concerns have dire consequences on the socio-economic and political viability of citizens and affect the dynamics of the family, communities and society at large.
Since inception, Live Abundantly!® (www.livesabundantly.com), in accord with our commitment of investing in our communities and promoting positive social change™ through education, awareness and advocacy, has recognised the importance of a Children’s Awareness Initiative™ platform which provides a robust educational programme for school students, particularly secondary school students. We believe it is essential for today’s students to understand the importance of safeguarding their well-being by emphasising the importance of respecting children’s rights whilst providing rich, invaluable information which promotes equality, respectful living and a progressive future for all.
The interactive and powerful scheme designed by the Children’s Awareness Initiative™ is offered in collaboration with establishments such as International Organisation for Migration (IOM), Nigerian Police (NPF), National Agency for Trafficking Against Persons (NAPTIP), Ministry of Education, Ministry of Youth and Social Development, National Agency for Trafficking Against Persons (NAPTIP) and SYNLAB-Nigeria.
Participants are immersed in a richly-designed presentation featuring topic relevant theatre productions, expert forum speakers, audio-visual subject materials which enhance learning and discussion with the target audience who certainly have a chance to interact with the specialists throughout the session. An online portal called Children’s Corner (www.livesabundantly.com) has been created to address questions posed during the event as well as establish continuous engagement beyond the occasion.
Live Abundantly!® is confident the mission of the Children’s Awareness Initiative™ is achievable with the partnership of all stakeholders, who pledge to amplify the social awareness and education of students through a multi-layered approach with a singular purpose of emphatic and cogent nurturing of young lives in order for them to become knowledgeable and informed citizens who grow to be active and responsible adults devoted to the progress and development of their community and society – socially, economically and politically.
We invite individuals and organisations to join us through our Mindful Giving Changes Lives® campaign which hosts social education awareness presentations at state schools to make a difference in the lives of children by supporting their social education, their future and our collective future as a whole.
