Hello, everyone how are you? The past days have been lovely and I hope we've all been learning and growing in Good measure. Today, I'll be sharing information about an NGO named Coloured Life Initiative. I was privileged to meet their Coordinator, whom I found totally fascinating. The young man has so much zeal and energy and you know how happy I feel when I meet such people. Well, CLI will be launching out with a couple of programs next month; 1000Voices (A literary competition for young people) and GREEN WHITE GREEN: More than just colours. The programs are in line with their intentions to empower and educate young people. Here is a brief insight to what the organization is about.
ABOUT COLOURED LIFE INITIATIVE: The Coloured Life Initiative is a youth based initiative aimed toward encouraging an all round positive lifestyle for the Nigerian youth. It is geared towards creating a balance between the exuberant, fun-filled life that youths are drawn to and the responsible, value-filled life that the society needs them to lead. The term "Coloured" was often used in referring to the black Americans in the late 19th and mid 20th Centuries. What most people fail to recognise is that these blacks were extremely hard working and it was upon this hard work that the success of the western world was built. Apart from these,the "Coloured" people were also responsible for the evolution of Hip Hop,which is the most popular genre of music today as well as a range of other music genres such as Afro. Thus, The Coloured Life for a youth represents a wholesome life of hard work and responsibility as well as ability to have fun as that is a part of youth. Be Good,Be Youth. The Coloured Life Initiative Team is comprised of RESPONSIBLE,VALUE MINDED young people who are not afraid to have fun cos they are also youths. Spreading the word that being a youth is not just about fun nor is it just about academics,but both in the right amounts can COLOUR up your life The initiative will be bringing up projects such as "A THOUSAND VOICES" which will commence in October as well as "THE COLOUR MARCH" which will be held in December of this year (12:12:12).
