There will be the creation of Geographical Societies in all schools across all regions in the country.

  • They will meet to discuss issues that are of interest to the group and also their studies.
  • Will form groups that will participate in the project competitions.
  • Help one another in enhancing the study of geography.
  • Plan field trips.
