Sensitization doesn't end in orientation camps, the essence of sensitizing young people is so they can take the message to their immediate community. The Social Welfare CDS Group of Lagos Mainland took U-Report to Makoko community. Youth engagement empowers young people to have a voice in decisions that affect them, and that's exactly what the U-Report platform stands for. U-report allows citizens to speak-out on what is happening in their communities, by providing a platform to amplify their voices. Collected information is shared with the concerned stakeholders about the issues their constituents are facing, and feeds back useful information to the U-reporters, so they are empowered to work for change and improvements. Thank you @sebiomo for taking and also sharing this awesome video.
