Youths & Child Rights Advocacy

HDI is a strong advocate of child’s right, reproductive health rights and responsibilities. In pursuit of this we organise an annual leadership training/workshop for adolescents at the Child’s Right Educational Training Center of Human Development Initiatives. The purpose of the workshop is to provide the adolescents with experience of being able to make a difference in their world through their actions; build up their resistance against negative peer pressure with sessions on leadership exercise, talent development and other relevant topics such as Reproductive Health and Rights, Career Information and Counselling, Leadership Styles and Skills, Body Image, Principles of Savings and Financial management among others.
Youths are usually trained on how to make different arts and crafts to prepare them for entrepreneurship and taken to visit different organisations. Some organisations visited in the past include: Dangote Plant, The Nation newspaper, Nigerian Breweries, among others.
