FIST Africa, Madiba Foundation, and MacArthur Foundation Launch “I AM THE NEW NIGERIA” Campaign to Empower Young Nigerians

FIST Africa, in collaboration with the Madiba Foundation and with the support of the MacArthur Foundation, is proud to announce the unveiling of the “I AM THE NEW NIGERIA” Campaign. This innovative project aims to inspire a new generation of Nigerians who are committed to building a brighter future for their country.

The Campaign will leverage the power of creative messaging and digital technology to instil core values like integrity, accountability, and respect for diversity among Nigerian youth. Through compelling campaign materials designed in various formats, the initiative seeks to:

  • Promote Positive Values and Behavioural Change: Encourage responsible and patriotic attitudes, reducing negative behaviours such as crime and violence.
  • Increase Civic Engagement: Motivate active participation in civic activities, including voting, community development, and volunteerism.
  • Boost National Pride: Foster a strong sense of identity and belonging to Nigeria.
  • Shared Ownership for a New Nigeria: Promote shared responsibility for the country’s progress, moving beyond blame-shifting.

“I AM THE NEW NIGERIA” is a project under the umbrella of Organising for a New Nigeria (ONN), which aims to harness the skills, creativity, and energy of young Nigerians to build a nation that works for everyone.

The official unveiling of the Campaign will take place on Thursday, May 30th, 2024, at the Yar’Adua Centre in Abuja, Nigeria. The event will also be streamed online for wider participation.

Those interested in attending the event, either physically or virtually, can register here:
