We are individuals who are highly active in the poetry society and have Come together to initiate the change we recite on our stages into the world. We live in, by playing our part in improving the communities we reside in.
As poets, we spend our time practicing our art by reciting enlightenment to the masses. We speak life into the lives of many, we motivate and aggravate thought provoking issues surrounding social ills, identity, culture etc . We heal souls through our spoken art and challenge ignorance by raising awareness. Within our audience as we believe that we need to know the world we live in so. We can determine where to render our charitable services by lending a helping hand
POETICIANS. W.W.W aims at progressing beyond just speaking about change but becoming the change that we want to see. We seek the words we speak to warrant a tangible difference, to feed mouths, to revive dreams, to impart hope in the realms of desolate souls, hence the movements states: POETICIANS.w.w.w- We.Wont.Watch. We will act against the ills crippling our societies. Our main target and focal point being the Orphanages.
EXECUTION: PLAN OF ACTION
There are numerous poetry movements in progress that we will utilize as a platform for the donations to be received. Attendants will be requested to bring with them any item they have at their disposal in support of this cause, this will enable us to mobilize an army of poets to take a stand and live up to their poems by practicing what they preach and teach. All proceeds will be sent to the designated orphanage. We will document a calculated estimation of the items collected as track Record to measure the change instigated by this movement and to determine the progress of the project, thereafter we will host an entire session dedicated to the orphanages, where poets will bless the stage to edutain. Feedback will be given to the public/poets and the life changing results of this project will be shared with the participating movements. Masses will be thanked for their contribution. The progress of this charity movement will be celebrated as we endeavor on making it a success.
