During this year's summer holiday, precisely on July 18, a fourth-year Law major, Chijioke Attamah, embarked on a community service project in Vunoklang, Girei Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
The project which involved painting a block of three classrooms took place at Government Day Secondary School, Vunoklang.
Many students' community projects are usually in Yola and the environs, but Attamah's was different. He said that he chose the school because it is where he had lived for 10 years before he relocated to Yola to study at AUN. The project honors the late President Nelson Mandela of South Africa.
Mr. Attamah said that the event was organized on the platform of Attamah Foundation, an NGO he is establishing to help him in giving back to his community. Attamah Foundation will focus on advocacy for human rights, social justice and civil liberty in Africa; community service projects in the areas of education, health, and clean water, and youth empowerment in Africa.
Mr. Attamah is very passionate about community development services and human rights protection. He derives motivation and inner fulfillment by helping people get their problems solved. He is also the Director of Startup Grind, AUN Chapter, Assistant Director of Transport, Student Government Association and a member of the House of Representatives, AUN Law Students Society. He also has business acumen as he is the founder of Honey Purified, a platform that supplies Nigerians with 100 percent natural honey.
