Philip Obaji Jr.

Education Activist

Philip Obaji Jr. is the founder and general coordinator for the 1 GAME Campaign, which promotes basic primary education for vulnerable kids in Nigeria. Philip traveled from house to house – urging parents to send their children to school and created a book center, where poor school children can get exercise books and pens for free.

Philip also started a community project, Off The Streets, for street children who are facing challenges of exclusion from school, ignorance, recruitment into insurgent groups, neglect and abuse. As a result of their work, more than 100,000 children in northeast Nigeria, a region devastated by violence and terror, are enrolled in school and have access to writing materials.
