On June 23, 2016, DOAM Foundation held the maiden edition of its inter-school debate program for junior secondary school students at Lagos State Education District VI. This inter-school debate program titled “Child Right Protection” held at Eletu-Odibo Junior Secondary School, Ameen Street, Abule Oja, Yaba, Lagos. Other Lagos state junior secondary schools in Education District IV converged to the venue for their participation in the program.
The aim of this inter-school debate is to educate the students on Child Right Protection while consciously improving communication and literacy skills amongst same students through a competitive deliberation.
The students representing each school came prepared for the program as they displayed their understanding of the title of the debate through their debating skills.
