Call for Book Donations: SHIINE Academy Project Chose the Right Career (CRiC)!


SHIINE Academy, an organisation whose vision is to eradicate poverty through self discovery of every young person is holding her Season 3 of Project Chose the Right Career (CRiC) in Calabar Cross River State, Nigeria. The project is planned to host 200 students from 20 schools and professional counsellors to interact together.

As part of the program, 200 books will be giving to students and 100 to the school libraries (5 each). The aim is to make available materials that will help Nigerian students utilise the power of education. Project CRiC generally, is organised to give young students opportunities to learn how to turn their passions into their professions.

SHIINE calls on Individuals, groups, organisations and institutions to help build Nigerian students that will not be frustrated in future because of the educational system or professions they don’t like through BOOKS DONATIONS.
