#OfficeOfTheCitizen Hackathon

We expect to launch the #OfficeOfTheCitizen portal in October – “not every time rant; sometimes act!”

The portal will effectively integrate the efforts of active citizens and activists in order to produce well worked out responses to identified issues.

Would you like to help build the portal? Join the hackathon hosted by Budgit & PIN on Saturday, August 29th.

One Voice Peace Concert

The much talked about One Voice Peace Concert was hosted by EiE and 2Face Foundation last week Thursday in Ikeja, Lagos.

It brought to a very colorful end our 6-city tour promoting the #RSVP Campaign. The concerts were funded by the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA) and we’re very grateful for their support.

Attendees and others are already requesting for more concerts across the country – watch out!
