Zuriel Visits Idp Camp

As part of her efforts to promote the girl-child education in Africa, 13-years old advocate and world’s youngest film maker, Zuriel Oduwole has visited Internally Displaced Persons’ camp near Abuja.

Accompanied by her team of volunteers, she embarked on the visit to encourage the children in the face of difficult circumstances. She spent the afternoon teaching them the alphabets, and the children in turn taught her their local games.

Zuriel gave the younger children Angry Bird branded toothbrushes and toothpaste. The camps are seldom visited by children.

A few days earlier in Abuja, she was received by various envoys to Nigeria, including the Ambassadors of Tanzania, Cuba, Trinidad & Tobago and the USA. Her discussions centred on various areas of education, including ways these governments could assist her Dream Up, Speak Up, Stand Up project, in making significant difference in the lives of the more than 10 million Nigerian children, currently out of school.

On arrival in Lagos, she was a guest at one of the slum2school students programs in Makoko – Lagos, where she donated books to the children. She encouraged them to dream, and showed them a video clip of some of her work.
