Nwaogu said: “Advocacy has always been one of our main objectives, as an association. We believe in the humanistic ideals and we believe in fairness and justice for everybody.

“So we do hold empowerment programmes such as this regularly every year. What we do is try to do home-grown projects.

“We also recognise international days set aside to mark specific days like the one we are celebrating today, which is International Day for Poverty Eradication.

“As NAS, we recognise and mark World Mental Health Day and other days. In the future, we will continue to do other advocacy programmes. So we are still going to get more.”

Also, Chairman, Advocacy Committee of the body, Kingsley Onyebuka, tasked the beneficiaries to make good use of the opportunity to create opportunities for others.
