The National High School Magazine Project
This is a major project that seeks to bring together students of Second Cycle Institutions in each country throughout Africa, and to improve their cognitive competences, preparing them both for the world of work and for academia.
The theoretical concept being applied in the National High School Magazine Project is the Social Learning Theory of Behavior Change Communication. This theory argues that Human Beings learn not only from their own actions and inactions, but also by observing the actions and inactions of other people, and the consequences thereof. This theory has been successfully applied in programming for Behaviour Change among young people by many renowned, international organizations, including UNICEF and other multilaterals.
In applying this concept, therefore, students of Second Cycle Institutions will have the opportunity to observe (through reading and pictures), the actions and inactions of their peers countrywide as well as receive positive reinforcement from education authorities, who are responsible for the moral and social welfare of these students.
