BBOG: What strategy after one year?

One year after the kidnapping of the Chibok girls, I am going to post a series of 3 short blog posts about our strategy for the future.

In short:
- Support core activists and coordinate global campaign
- Provide information that highlights what can be done (as opposed to mere "infotainement").
- Act in ways that our individual efforts build on each other's work.
- Not rely on Twitter, as it has proved to be a very poor platform for activism.

About @BringGirlsBack and the Forgotten Ones project

People who have been regularly following me since the beginning of the #BringBackOurGirls campaign last year, know who I am. I have often communicated (via twitter or otherwise) about the reasons of my involvement in the campaign. But I still get new followers who are wondering, so I wrote this blog entry to clarify a few points.

My name is augustin and I am managing the Twitter channel @BringGirlsBack. I am not Nigerian. I've never been there. I am a Frenchman who has been living in Asia for 17 years.

Meeting with the Nigerian ambassadors

I am currently aware of 2 individuals who are actively trying to have a face-to-face meeting with the Nigerian ambassadors in their respective countries, in order to discusse #BringBackOurGirls, the fight againgst BokoHaram and more generally the situation in NE Nigeria.

This blog entry is to document a little their action, the reaction (or lack thereof) of the Nigerian embassies, and to see how we can help them.

No good News coming from NE Nigeria - their plight largely forgotten: we can still do something!

In reply to an email I received from a UK BringBackOurGirls supporter, I highlighted a few priority items I will be working on during the new few weeks/months:

> Has there been any
> progress with the effort to find the Chibok schoolgirls?
> And how are the families coping?
