Humanity Nigeria is the fastest growing humanity brand in Africa,  comprising young people that are  concerned about  caring  for our earth and humanity,  through public spirited participating events and activities.

Humanity Nigeria's Mission Statement,  is to be in the forefront of the campaign for a clean environment and a safe earth for all.

Humanity Nigeria, made up of young professional volunteers from across Nigeria, is currently attempting the Guinness World Record for the highest number of plastic bottles collected  by any  team in the world, within  five days. 

To therefore ensure success at attempting to achieve this  Guinness world record, the team sought the endorsement of Prince Yemisi Shyllon and the partnership of OYASAF in the Earth-to-Art project of picking waste plastic bottles and converting them into recycled art pieces and other positive utilities.  The Team would carry out a   5-day world record exercise of picking and showcasing the utility value of waste plastic bottles and educate the world of the environmental and health harmful consequences of  poor waste disposal of plastic bottles. 

The Team thus made a pre-festival visit to Prince Yemisi Shyllon Museum where they were received by him and long drawn discussion was held,  towards the success of the  team's Guinness World Record project  in partnership with OYASAFwww.facebook.comwww.facebbok.com
