A campaign is a planned sequence of activities, projects and processes which are co-ordinated to promote a specific agenda and achieve a specific aim. It is usually to create awareness, bring about a change or help to put an end to an injustice.
In TTCJN we periodically undertake campaigns in situations where particular policies or situations are not in the favor of the youth or students. This is usually, done as part of our projects.
A petition is a formal written request to do something, most commonly addressed to a government official or someone in authority or a superior. It is usually done in a respectful and official manner and it has to have the signatures of all those who are in support of the request or strongly feel about the issues raised in the petition.
Sometimes, a complaint is rather presented instead of a petition. A complaint is filed to seek damages or to get a defendant to start or stop doing something.
Petitions are often used in an appeal to cause the authority to reconsider certain decisions based on the presented facts of the request.
As youth who are the future leaders of the world, we always have to ensure that we make our voices heard and act to change any status quo that is not in our favor. Hence, as part of the campaigns, we organize petitions, issue white papers, organize protests, embark on an outreach, write articles, use social media as well as print and electronic media.
