Nigerian network member African Youth Movement was in school yesterday spreading the news about the International Day for Disaster Reduction. Owem Utu Robert was at Deo Gratis school in Abuja, leading activities and making presentations. His colleagues were also staging activities  in Bauchi, Bayelsa and Plateau states Great stuff Robert.
