Happiness is a key factor in helping a child’s brain develop. This is why it’s very important to make sure that children have a lot of happy memories they can look back to when they’re all grown up. A happy childhood is vital to growth and development.
On Friday 14th December 2018, we had a swell time with our children. It was their end of the year party with us. We saw them dance, play, receive gifts, have fun as we welcome them into a fun-filled Christmas season.
In most rural communities like Imafon, Christmas season is often not fun filled for the children. They rarely get Christmas gifts like new shoes or clothes or books or games or toys; just something to spice up the season for them. Celebrating Christmas with the kids of Imafon community is one way to create a happy 2018.
They have been with us almost every day throughout the year. Our office is their free space. They come after school hours during the week and during the weekends whenever we are in the office to spend time with us. They are a big part of the organization now.
Celebrating our children, we had partnership support from My Period Kit and Pace Impact Initiative. It was beyond a get-together. Sanitary kits were given to female teenagers and School bags to some of our kids. It was a Christmas season they will never forget and a memory they would always cherish.
