Hello Transformers! Welcome to your online space – Transformers: Teens Transforming Society!
By popular request, we started this blog to share information about your Transformers projects and to celebrate your success in them. More importantly, you will be able to write back to us and tell us what you want us to work on, how we can get you more involved in UVA. We also hope you can be a guest writer on this blog soon.
Big congratulations to Transformers in Corona and Murthala Mohammed Airport school for organizing two successful Children’s Day event in Adiowe Secondary School and St. Joseph’s secondary school. All together, about 800 teenagers were engaged because of you! You also made an impact on the environment and education!!!Weldone.
Big shout out to our club members in Murthala Mohammed (MM2) Airport school for speaking up for the Chibok girls and writing a letter to the president about this matter. Your letter was published in Sun Newspaper.
Also big thank you to all of you for participating in the UVA photo shoot; your photos were amazing!
Our members at Grange Secondary School have also worked really hard and tried to organize an event but couldn’t. Your efforts were noted. Many thanks to David Lewis and Ose for all that you do behind the scenes to keep the Grange network alive.
Currently, you should be working on your Good Deed Day; please let us know if you have questions and upload the pictures of your Good deed on our Facebook page (The Unveiling Africa Foundation). Use hashtag #gooddeedday .
In August, we have a very very exciting campaign coming up and we need your help to make it successful! We are looking for volunteers to run the event. The campaign is called Days of Change and it starts from August 2 -8, 2014. Days of Change is all about having fun and doing good from your community. Every day from August 2 – 8, we will reveal a mystery social challenge that you have to complete within a day. There are prizes to be won!! Challenges will include playing your favourite sport for a cause, educating the less privileged, teaching children in your neighbourhood, recycling, writing a letter or making a video about an issue that you care about, creating something you can sell for money, running errands at home to show love for your parents, learning new African languages and lots more. We want to inspire 5000 teenagers to do something good for Nigeria through this campaign; so we need you to make this happen!
