International Day of the African Child

Together with other Igoji schools, the children at the Eusebia Hope Centre celebrated the Day of the African Child on 16 June.

This yearly event is held on the anniversary of the Soweto uprising in 1976, which resulted in the death of 176 student protesters. This opportunity is used by schools, governments and NGOs to celebrate improvements in child welfare and education and to draw attention to the challenges still present.

Celebrations in Igoji took place in style: Christine kindly rented a tent for our children and they gave a speech to local dignitaries to great acclaim.
