letter102609SAMS01-2010REGFRM-2.pdfIn pursuance of the Memorandum of Understanding between African Projects/Foundation for Peace and Love Initiatives, (APPLI/AFPLI) and the Lagos State Government Ministry of Education, the first edition of the seminar/workshop aimed at equipping secondary school students with media skills for youth peace and nation building will be held on February 10, 2010. The seminar will be bi-annual. The maiden edition of the SAMS will be held in collaboration with the Nigerian Union of Journalists, EKO FM/RADIO LAGOS, Chapter. APPLI/AFPLI also maintains a Memorandum of Understanding with the Nigerian Union of Journalists for the promotion of proactive grassroots peace building in Nigeria.

Student participants, chaperones of the school-based peace clubs, and officials will be drawn from the Six Education Districts of Lagos State, made up of 18 local government areas in Lagos State. Seasoned peace journalists and peace educators will facilitate the seminar/workshop.

APPLI/AFPLI is promoting its 20-year long tomorrow for youth peace and nation building through four school-based peace clubs which segue into one another as follows:

1. The African Children of Peace Clubs targeted at children in elementary schools (ages 5-12).

2. The Youth Peace Alliance Clubs targeted at teenagers in junior and senior secondary schools (ages 13-19).

3. The KAIROS Peace and Love Clubs targeted at young adults at institutions of higher learning (ages 20-24).

4. The New Peace Legacy Clubs targeted at young graduates doing their one year national service through the Nigeria Youth Service Commission (NYSC).

SAMS, like our other proactive grassroots peacebuilding programs, is expected to become perpetual. The program is also expected to become a nationwide appartus to promote youth peace and nation building.
