Lovelyn Andrawus is a climate justice activist, educator and environmentalist. I started a project on writing an eco comic book about the environment and climate change for kids of all learning ages. Lovelyn is also an active member of Fridays For Future, Rise Up Movement Africa, Arewa Youth Climate Movement amongst oteht and the Founder of Kwaji Environmental Education Foundation.

The comic book is a personal project for me which I've be on for months and is finally here and ready. I'm so excited about it and that's why am starting this go get funding to raise funds so I can print and make copies of the book for climate education. I visit schools to teach kids and young people about their environment and climate change, I noticed they somewhat find it boring and a bit difficult to understand.

So I decided to make it more fun and easier for them to learn about the world surrounding them by introducing art and graphics in form of a comic making them heroes in their environment. I do not intend to make profits from this book but to make it free and available to kids in Africa and starting with my home country Nigeria.

The goal is to visit each state in Nigeria with a thousand copies and distribute it around schools within the state. And there are about thirty six states and the Capital. The cost of production and distribution of the books amongst states is quite expensive which am unable to afford now.


I'm very intentional and passionate about what I do especially this and can't wait to start this adventurous journey of making the world a better place with my little actions against climate change. I visit schools and communities to sensitize them on issues of climate and the environment and also teach them how to be resilient towards the climate crisis and take action by planting trees.

These funds will so much mean a lot to me to accomplish this vision. Young people in my country have very little knowledge about climate change and what's happening around them. I aim to narrow this gap in the dissemination of information on climate change amongst young people around me. Climate education is very important in achieving sustainable development goals for a better world. In the fight against climate change everyone needs to be inclusive. All that is needed is the funds to put this vision in motion.

We have also used the funds we’ve got from this account to carry out a pilot and sensitization project in Kaduna State Northern Nigeria. Distributed over a 100 copies of the eco comic book to Wonder Kids Academy. We learned and had fun with young children with a reading session and signing of copies. The energy and outcome was positive with a huge success. We hope to do more!

The time to take action and act is now. Help Lovelyn to achieve her target and start this journey. Thank you so much.

Blessings,

Lovelyn.
