The much awaited all secondary school programme have gotten a nod from the Lagos State Ministry Of Education as various celebrities such as Desmond Elliot, Gbemi Olateru –Olagbegi, Julius Agwu amongst others and youth advocates have also endorsed the programme.
PROJECT CAPABLE was created to stem the tide of social and moral decadence. A strategy designed to offer young people of Secondary School age the opportunity to discover the right path to self-discovery through programs and life coaching sessions specially designed for these purposes. The idea is to adopt carefully selected celebrities and youth advocates as vehicle of social change thereby having them motivate, inspire and educate several young Nigerians who look up to them.
The programme is scheduled to hold on Thursday 13th November at the Indoor Sports Hall of the Teslim Balogun Stadium by 10a.m, with an expected convergence of over 2000 secondary school students from both public and private schools in Lagos state.
The maiden edition was held successfully in 2009 at the Indoor sports hall of the National stadium. Jimmy Jatt, Kate Henshaw , Owen Gee, Uti Nwachukwu and Ofunneka Molokwu are some of the celebrities who have spoken at other editions of the epoch making event
According to the Team leader and Project coordinator Esther Ijewere-Kalejaiye "Our Aim is to directly influence the lives of teenagers by being part of their growth process and activities through out-of-class educative programmes and to make the role of celebrities and youth advocates more useful in their everyday contribution to the growth of the nation's teenager by sustaining them as behavioral and attitudinal change agents of our society”.
The secondary school summit is packaged by Rubies Ink, organisers of the first of its kind "Walk Against Rape” (W.A.R.) Campaign in Nigeria.
