BEATS OF THE FUTURE

There’s nothing more beautiful than helping children create the world they imagine. This was exactly how we invested our time on June 28, 2014 by creating a colourful word for children.

In partnership with Ivory Connect on their “Market Ibadan Business Festival”,  we organised a cultural festival for about 150 kids from community schools and a foster home. It was an exciting way to involve the community and children.

The theme of the event was tagged “Beats of The Future”. This is because we exist to encourage children to be the pioneers of their dreams; children are important to us! Every growing community needs children; they are indeed the beats of the future we seek.

It was encouraging to see that the kids and their guardians looked forward to the day, thus, their preparation were excellent as well as entertaining.

As we know, a festival isn’t complete without at least few good shows. Our volunteers were actively engaged in featuring exciting activities such as a dance performance, talent contest, a quiz competition, games and much more. There were also free giveaways.

An invited guest and pioneer of Jumpstart Academy (www.jumpstartacademy.org), Tola Akinsola gave a speech on why education and making the right choice is relevant at this time.  There were other educative talks from our awesome volunteers.

It was indeed a memorable event! Special thanks to Ivory Connect for giving us such a golden platform to connect children. Also, to Indomie Noodles for their services.
