PROJECT 500

MEDIA FOR CHANGE AND DEVELOPMENT.

Nigeria at the moment is plagued with so many challenges waiting to be solved, from poverty, insecurity, weak institutions, poor health care facilities and infrastructure etc.  There is massive brain drain going on, professionals are leaving the country in large drones. It seems everyone has given up on Nigeria.

As an organization, we have two options, we can join those who continue to complain about the issues or take action and do something.

Project 500 is Del-York Creative Academy taking action and doing something about the issues.
