In an effort to foster the mission of African Faith and Justice Network and UNANIMA International, I and the youth from different parishes carried out advocacy drive against drug abuse, human trafficking and early marriage within Jos metropolis and its environs in Plateau State, North central of Nigeria, West Africa.
Joining us as well were our SHCJ Sisters, tertians and novices, Our Lady of Fatima Sisters and Franciscan Missionaries of Divine Motherhood, in collaboration with Nigerian Drug and Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), Catholic Media, Nigerian Television Authority and Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC).
These triple ills are prevalent in the areas mentioned. Hence, the need for advocacy; to sensitize the youths on the dangers and to disabuse their minds against such ills. The visuals and videos below will give you a glimpse of what we did.
