AA PeaceWorks has extended the anti cultism campaign under the ongoing project with NSRP aimed at reducing cult related violence in Ughelli North LG to Secondary Schools. This activity was included in the work plan for the second quarter of the project because the baseline conducted at the project inception revealed that cultism has become the norm among some secondary schools in the LG. We therefore aim to intensify campaign against cultism among secondary school students through the use of video vignettes showing the stories of young cultist in Ughelli North LG killed in cult related violence in 2015 as a tool for sensitization against cultism.
The sensitisation is aimed at:
- Helping the students identify the right role model
- Exposing the dangers in cultism.
- Mindset change for those already members of cult groups.
- Possible renouncement of their membership of cult groups.
