PeFoHD CEO and staff spent the day with Joy Academy at Oglefarm, Freetown celebrating the DAY OF THE AFRCAN CHILD.  PeFoHD donated children’s books to start a library, Teaching and Learning Materials as the school had no academic materials. The PeFoHD CEO read books, conducted Quiz and Dance Competition with Gifts for everyone.

 

The Day of the African Child was first initiated by the OAU (Organization of African Unity), and has been celebrated on June 16 every year since 1991.  The celebration is to raise awareness and to  honor those who participated in the Soweto Uprising and to ensure the continuing need for improvement of the education provided to African children.

Ten thousand Black School Children marched on June 16th, 1976, protesting the poor quality of their education and demanding their right to be taught in their language in Soweto, South Africa. Hundreds of the school children were shot by government soldiers, and thousands injured on that fateful day

 

So, June 16th. 2017, we at PeFoHD join governments, NGOs, international organizations and other stakeholders  challenges and join efforts in addressing opportunities facing the full realization of the rights of children Africa.   We pray for the day when children in Africa and all over the world will have full access to quality education without regard to class, ethnicity, tribal or poverty.  May God bless all those who reach out to help all children reach their highest educational potentials.


 

We would like to thank all our supporters including donors of books, learning materials, shippers, financial support etc. Dr. Annette West, Fresh Anointing House of Worship - Atlanta, Bishop Kyle Searcy, Pastor Kemi Searcy, Pastor Paula Stallworth, Al Sillah, Al G Sillah, Antoine Sillah For more information, contact peoplesfoundationhd@gmail.com.
