Every Wednesdays, our presenter and co-presenters visit Ikeja Lagos to air the program. The program is aired between 18:45 to 1945 GMT+ but our presenters normally get there an hour before the program. We plan to run this program for one year and it's currently in its 5th edition. Though, our budget covers initial plan of six(6) months, Before now, we usually support our presenter and co-presenters with local transport and refreshments but we need support for its continuity. see the page activities on meta here
