MY BARIGA MY PRIDE INITIATIVE is fast gaining momentum amongst the residents of the Bariga community, and Lagos state as a whole. It was conceived as a result of the need to celebrate ‘our own’- Bariga-bred individuals who had made a mark for themselves in their chosen careers. For us at FOOTPRINTS OF DAVID, we deem it fit to appreciate the boundless talents inherent in the Bariga area in order to encourage more success stories emanating from this side of the world.
This platform has the full a backing of the Executive Chairman BARIGA LCDA in which is a member of the Board of the initiative and the league of Baale the traditional authority of the Bariga area of Lagos. The initiative organizes periodic seminars, trainings, conferences, workshops, curate community festivals/programs and also act as a watershed to cultivating more ideas to inspire innovations that will cause more positive change in the country starting from the immediate community. On the other hand, there is a more concerted drive in organizing award ceremonies for outstanding Barigarians in the country and in the Diaspora.

It holds as a free monthly workshop training outreach; each of the month slated for either children or adults to be tutored in the act and arts of photography.
Consequently, the Bariga Photo training sessions have turned out good hands in photography. By October, the graduates from the children and adult training sessions would be displaying their works and taking picture of different parts of Bariga at the first ever community based photo gathering called Bariga Photo Festival.
