#AfricaNeedsYou campaign: Chude Jideonwo leads the future awards team on a trip to Chibok

The Boko Haram insurgency has no doubt been comprehensively reported but there’s another side to the story.
The other-side of the Boko Haram menace that’s often ignored is the human angle, the casualties, the sufferers of the evil attacks and the displaced, hopeless-feel.
Hence, it was a matter of morality and duty for The Future Project to seek to help bring to the fore, tales of those directly affected by insurgency.

As part of the 100-city #AfricaNeedsYou campaign, The Future Awards Africa 2015 team, led by founder, Chude Jideonwo, recently embarked on a fact-finding trip to one of Boko Haram’s nerve center, Chibok, in Borno state.

During the trip, The Future Project got to ascertain the state of things and the plight of displaced Nigerians in the North-East, as well as the ruins left behind, in the wake of Boko Haram’s attacks.
Below, is a short photo-story of the trip:
