According to the United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon, the World Humanitarian Day is an annual reminder of the need to act to alleviate the suffering. It is also an occasion to honour the humanitarian workers and volunteers toiling on the frontlines of crises. It is a unique opportunity to pay tribute to these dedicated women and men who brave danger to help others at far greater risk.
In celebration of this special day, volunteers of OneAfricanChild Foundation raised a voice on the kind of world they would like to see, as humanitarians and active citizens.
I’d like a world where children can sleep at night and meet their dreams in the morning. A world of peace where their right to Future is respected.

An encompassing world where there is peace beyond the borders of racial and tribal segregation!

Basically, a world where love and peace reigns.
~ Ujunwa Umeokeke
I want world where girls are not held back from reaching their full potential: either by themselves, their families or their communities. A world in which girls can stay in school, get access to health services, get married and have children when they choose, realise their economic potential and their dreams: because they demand it and because the others in their lives demand it, for them too. I just want everyone to know that education is the only solution to a better life for us all. We must never forget that an educated mother will
result in a healthy, educated and prosperous family.
