It is always so beautiful to do something nice for just about anyone. Think about an act of love such as helping an elderly person across the street, giving a little child some sweet candy or even spending quality time with other people doing things we love. That is truly beautiful.
This past children’s day, OneAfricanChild celebrated the moment with hundreds of children at the Silverbird galleria, Lagos.
It was a fun moment as the organisation had their own stand inside of the galleria alongside other companies such as Lacasera, Chivita, Keystone Bank, Enterprise Bank, One Care, MTN and many others who were all gathered with the motive of ensuring that the kids have an exciting and memorable day.
OneAfricanChild is an organisation established to educate and empower children on the essence of being young and African.
The activities planned out for children were both fun and educative as there was free face paintings for the kids, a quiz competition and so many give away items.
Their was a brief educative session where children and younger adults got to learn a bit more about Oneafricanchild, about what good we stand to promote as humans, serving humanity.
There was also an interactive session where we asked what children’s day meant each child. This event was another good opportunity aside our campaign on social media, to lend our voice for the return of the over 200 abducted girls in Borno State, Nigeria. Parents and children alike expressed their feelings towards this situation and spoke in affirmation for the return of these girls to their families.
At OneAfricanChild, we recognise that all children regardless of race, religion or sex are important and deserve the freedom of education and the enjoyment of peace while learning. Our children will learn only what we show them. We must say NO to violence and continue to promote one love and unity.
OneAfricanChild’s Children’s Day outing was sponsored by Pulse TV, TVC and G-14 Photography.
Many thanks to the management of Silverbird Galleria for the great opportunity to impart.
It was indeed a memorable event. Together, we will do much more for our children!
