The strongest aspect of the 40 Days for Life campaign in Abuja is the community outreach effort ? particularly in the schools.

It?s a key element in helping to encourage an even stronger culture of life in Nigeria.

?It was our second visit to one school,? said Kelechi, the local coordinator, ?and when we asked the students again the reasons they should abstain from sex until marriage, many hands went up and they answered correctly and confidently ? which gladdened our hearts that our first visit to them is not forgotten.?

Kelechi said the students and teachers ?greatly appreciated our visit, as you can see from their pictures.?

She was able to deliver donated books that will support weekly group study sessions on morality education ? and students were encouraged to follow the suggestions in a publication on the top ten reasons to wait until marriage.
