      Wow thanks Richard! The project is ambitious and we hope Micro grants gives us an opportunity to implement it.

  • Hi Lucas; this is a brilliant idea and would like to wish you well. However just to ask; don’t you think that your target which is 500,000 youth is a very wide and unrealistic target? also you need to be specific though as the stated target may not be found in the stated region.
    Generally the idea is good
    wish you well

      Hi Felix! Thanks for your comments and observation. Yes this is a rough estimate of the financial beneficiaries based on available data from the national bureau of statistics. The idea would be to involve youth from 4 major regions in political and social discourse with the main aim of empowering them to make informed political decisions. It’s practical since the proposed discussions will be aired out live on Radio and resolutions reached following a joint meeting involving representatives uploaded online and shared out with policy makers.
