2016 International Day of the African Child

2016 international day of the african child 2

This year, we celebrated the international day of the African child with 115 children at the New Generation Center. 60 of these children still live on the streets. This event was an opportunity for us to remind them that they are not forgotten and encourage them not to lose hope because of the problems that they are encountering on the streets.
The New Generation team that went to Rio this year also read the Rio Resolution to the children. The Rio Resolution speaks about children’s right to education, protection from violence and legal identity. This was highly important to the street children as they came to know more about their rights. Innocent, Armel and Vianney also demonstrated some Brazilian dances and drums to the kids.
