Hello Peregrine readers,
I know it seemed like there’s been a short-break on our #ChildHero movement, but we did not go on a break. We’ve been cooking!
Yeah, there’s been so much plans cooking up to make the project a success and I’m back again to inform you of the the latest update on our #childhero movement for the less-privileged children.
For the benefit of those that haven’t followed us on this journey, let me introduce you to our #ChildHero project.
“CHILD HERO” is a 3-phase project aimed at raising a child awareness campaign that will connect the dots of the lives of the less-privileged children in the society.
The first part, a #ChildHero short story contest on the lives of less privileged children, kicked off on the blog on the 16th of December, 2015, bringing together the works of 15 contestants as a means of imprinting the dreams and hopes of every child in the heart of readers.
On the 1st of January, the winner of the contest was announced. Elemide Benjamin emerged winner with his story “Children of the Street”. This took the CHILD HERO project to the second part which is the filming of the winner’s story. The making of the movie is in progress!
Keep tabs for even more updates and set-pictures of the movie!
On the 14th of February, the CHILD HERO project wishes to embrace its third part which is a child funfair in a target street of Lagos, which will give us a chance to meet and connect with the less-privileged children, in the spirit of Valentine which speaks of love and compassion.
The project seeks to rededicate Valentine’s day to the less-privileged children by bringing together and celebrating two hundred less privileged children in a way like never before.
On this day, we will come together in celebration and merriment with the less-privileged children, dancing, engaging in fun games and activities, doing quizzes, dining and munching on food and drinks. We will momentarily share in the pains and joys of the less-privileged children, by putting a lasting smile on their faces.
Update on venue and other necessary details for the Feb 14th Child Hero day will be shared soon!
ACTIVITIES FOR THE FUNFAIR DAY (Feb 14th) WILL COMPRISE:
- Premiering of the CHILD HERO movie on a large screen projector
- Sharing of free snacks, foods and drinks to the children.
- Engaging the children in games and fun activities
- Giving out freebies to the children such as bags, writing materials, etc.
Amongst other proposed activities for the day…
The Child Hero project seeks to host 200 children and 100 guests for it’s Child funfair on Feb 14th, 2016. However, But all of these cannot be entirely achieved without your support!
Hence, the project looks up to supporters who would love to nurture this initiative of contributing to a good cause for the less-privileged children. Hence, the success of the CHILD HERO project is dependent on the financial and expertise support of persons who are enthusiastic about giving to the needy children.
In whatever degree your support is extended, it will surely go a long way in not only putting together the plans for our Feb 14th event, but will also give us a channel to honour the less-privileged children as the proceeds from supporting individuals and bodies will also be donated to target orphanage homes.
Join us in making the Feb 14th #childhero street funfair a reality. Wish to support financially or by way of expertise or with valuable resources that will be useful to the children, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
