All four participants engaged in exercises such as sharing more about themselves and their communities through the ‘My People’ exercise.

Also, each participant shared various perspectives on how they see the African continent. From their contributions, one can tell the connectedness and zeal of young people to sustain the African heritage.
Members also conducted a brief survey where they met eight other youths, who shared with them the needs of their communities and where humanitarian aids should be directed, in order to resolve them.

We thank all the members and each volunteer who gave even a single second of his time, to help entertain children and give them Love during the visits to orphans and other poor children in orphanages and schools.

We hope to grow greater and achieve more for children to smile for longer than a day, a month, or a year.
OneAfricanChild had a dream; and that dream was called WONDERFUL FUTURE FOR OUR CHILDREN.
The rest of Africa which is not yet active for that purpose should stand now and join the Family.

We thank also all the partners who have trust in OneAfricanChild, and thus who are willing to help offer children the best possible heritage in Africa. Our Land is rich, but if we abandon it, we shall regret our misbehaviour and no rest shall be granted.

I am Africa, you are Africa, we are OneAfricanChild.
