Childrens Day

7:59 AM


Community children that are not allowed to go to school
Their school
some dont even live in proper houses

Campus2Communities is a group of young people trying the best they can to make a positive impact in our society. it is made up of a couple of my classmates and other members of my faculty.
We had been working with the Ilaje community for a while. Some people had been going to teach the children and help out in whatever way they can and when childrens day was near we decided to throw them a little party.
People were generous with their donations and we were able to raise enough money to throw them an awesome party, they had lots to eat, got to paint their faces, had various cultural displays and got to dance and generally have a good time.
We had the most amazing time dancing with the kids and it made us so happy to be able to make such an impact on their lives and i hope the government and other bodies take note and try to help them.
i also hope that this little act will enable the other families in the community encourage their children to go to school because as we all know education is key.
I only visited the community twice but what i saw made me really count my blessings.
We go through life everyday complaining about what we dont have and what we want more of without bearing in mind that there are people who dont even have a quarter of these things.
There was a boy there who said that if he didnt hawk everyday he couldnt eat, a little girl that had to take care of her many siblings and other kids that dont live in real houses, just shacks and when it rains its really terrible.
But in spite of everything, they seemed to be happy and content you know, we didnt give out any extraordinarily expensive gifts but the fact that some of us went there regularly and taught them dances and even put on a play left them overjoyed.
i believe we should all try to give back once in a while. it doesnt have to be elaborate. some old clothes here and some toys or books there really go a long way.
Share your blessings!

  3. Such a sweet post and lovely pictures. It's a shame that people don't really celebrate this day too much but it's always good to reflect on remembering the situation of many children in the world.
