It is the first of its kind in Nigeria currently airing on Radio Rivers 99.1FM every Saturday, 8-9am and Garden City radio 89.9FM every Thursday 3-4pm, apart from media advocacy, we carry out social projects that have over the years incorporated youths into our system hence realizing one of our aims – raising #under30CEOs and competent leaders in society. Other aims of the Project is to inform, promote awareness, enlighten, entertain and educate society about advocacy for the environment in order to curb the increasingly alarming environmental challenges; hence enhancing the understanding of society to realize that these environmental hazards are not just a government problem but “the people problem” by integrating all and sundry to take action for the environment.
