“Realising the need to match words with actions in other to help the African Child; the African Child Projects through this conference is an attempt to involve all the critical stakeholders concerned with the future of young ones, youths, women and vulnerable persons in the region and Nigeria in general, towards evolving workable models that can improve their access to economic and social benefits, promote sustainable development and guarantee internal stability, not just in Niger Delta Region but Nigeria in general,” Osakwe declared.
The Inspired Niger Delta Schools Conference, which is within the framework of World Humanity Commission’s Global Impact, African Child Projects, has been structured to Inspire the Nigerian Child, on the restoration of a complete feeling of self-worth and promises to change the narratives of the Niger Delta Child, as stakeholders converge in Port Harcourt, to inspire and motivate children and adults in Niger Delta, to creative and positive enterprise for sustainable development.
