LEADERSHIP PROGRAMME IN UNIVERSITIES AND POLYTECHNICS
In partnership with the UK Department for International Development (DFID) through Voices for Change (now Purple) KIND was able to improve the Leadership, Decision making and Life-Skills competencies of adolescent boys and girls between the ages of 16 – 25 in University of Lagos (UNILAG) and Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH).
We employed the use of interactive virtual and physical platforms, referred to as ‘safe spaces’ in the school training. Over 450 young people have benefited from the leadership development programme in both schools and we are still in the process of training more.
