Focusing specifically on the platform of arts and culture, children participated in a series of interactive learning activities lead by local artists and craftspeople. The activities included information on Nigerian language, dance, arts and a traditional ‘batik’ workshop. 

T-shirts and backpacks were donated to the children as materials that they could utilize in their hands-on learning of how to “tie-dye”. Teachers guided the children on the step by step process, helping them understand the use of color and the techniques best used. 

All the students were encouraged to work together to cultivate a team spirit and maximize their creativity.
