The Citizens Award Project (CAP) is an initiative of Voluntary Aid and Development Organization (VADO) set out to identify and reward Nigerian citizens who have distinguished themselves in their various career endeavors, through evidence-based services covering Innovation, Time-span, Reach, Impact and Sustainability. The objectives are to encourage patriotism amongst citizens, build profiles, and showcase citizen’s local input for global visibility.
CAP confers a Public Service Award (PSA) to citizens whose efforts have remarkably contributed to nation’s building in their individual vocations, workplaces and communities. VADO, being a service oriented Non-Governmental Organization has designed this initiative to promote public services, instill the culture of volunteerism and encourage Individual Social Responsibility (ISR) in Nigeria.
CAP therefore operates a year-round open system of recognition, where the award is not trusted to citizens on the basis of age, tribe, gender, religion, disability and socio-economic status. VADO believes that every significant achievement from every Nigerian citizen should be identified and rewarded to inspire greater responsibility to achieve more for the common good of our nation.
The Citizens Award Project seeks for individuals who will nominate or refer exceptional services of Nigerian citizens, resident in the country with verifiable information about their work and social services to take advantage of this prestigious award; CAP is interested in documenting your services, projects and social innovations online for increased global visibility and support.
