POTS Newest Initiative in Nigeria and Uganda
POTS newest initiative after participating in The Greenhouse Global Cohort through The Pollination Project': Two collaborative projects in Nigeria and Uganda: "The Power of Young Voices: Poetry Writing to Elevate Young Voices Across the World."
In Nigeria, partnering with Child Shield Initiative, Poetry on the Streets is providing virtual poetry writing for young girls who have been displaced because of terrorist groups and are living in rural communities, unable to attend school, to help the girls express themselves through writing and share their words with others. See video clips on POTS Instagram page.
In Uganda, partnering with Usanii Village Africa, to provide poetry writing workshops for children in line with their mission for using art for social change.
Connecting these children with one another across the world in order to share their words and stories with one another and be heard.
