OLPHI Organises Party for Children

children dance competitionOur Lady of Perpetual Help Initiative organised and carried out a one day program for the Children in celebration of their day in association with the Children and the Entire Community of Avu in Avu Owerri-West Local Government of 15th June 2014 at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church Premises.

We used that opportunity to lend our voice on #BRING BACK OUR GIRLS# campaign. Activities planned and which the children participated fully in were Spelling Bees, Read and summarize a book, Chair Dance, Dancing Competition, Egg & Sack Races, Match past etc.

This celebration is the first in the community and the organisation has planned that it will be a yearly event if the community continues to support and allow their children to participate at all times. It was fun seeing the children making efforts in the competitions to excel in the different categories of activities carried out. The children were so happy to go home at the end of the day moreso for those that excelled in the various categories of the competition who went home with gifts. They were also properly fed. Some of the parents in attendance were amazed how smoothly the event went especially the Woman Leader of the community who doubles as the President General of the Women Forum Mrs. Beatrice Ahuokpeme, who was the special guest of honour.
