The International Day of the African Child has been celebrated on June 16 every year since 1991, when it was first initiated by the Organisation of African Unity. It raises awareness of the continuing need for improvement of the education provided to African children.
June 16 encourages our spirit of abundance to share something special with a child in Africa. We don't have to be in Africa to do it, and we're not limited to June 16.
The International Day of the African Child brings hope.
Today is the International Day of the African Child. Unlike so many other "international days", this one isn't just some feel-good day with an arbitrarily chosen date.
Does this ring a bell?
Lets think of our children and what is best for their future, it is vital to address the chronic state of water and sanitation in different countries in Africa..
This is in commemoration of that tragic event and to raise awareness of the continuing need for improving the education provided to African children.We must recognize the importance of education for children to break through the cycle of poverty.
We have so many street children who lives in an urban area, without family ties or infrastructure support. Many of these children are forced to develop survival strategies and rely on the street as their residence; they fall prey to the predators, both human and animal.Imagine not having the sense of belonging, or the emotional support that being part of a family provides. We believe that, above all else, children need a loving family and a place to call home.
We should also give the spiritual nourishment to them, so they also growing in the knowledge and the grace of our God.
It is true that African children face a myriad of challenges as they grow up. But what is also true about African children is: they love, play, learn, hope, dream, pray — they live!
AFRICA STAND UP!!
