Holiday For Hope Event Report
On Saturday, December 21st from 10:00am to 3:00pm at Gbawe Central Chapel, PAAJAF planned to celebrate 100 Children. By throwing a party and making a gift present to orphans and severely underprivileged children and youth in Gbawe Community. The idea was put smiles into the faces of children by enjoying a spectacular day of playing games, listening to music, making crafts, eating food, and a talent show. The children received a shopping bag full of gifts to take home!
PAAJAF organized this event with the recognition of Dreams For Kids USA and supported by GlobalGiving USA generous donors. The event was held on December 21, 2013. The Dreams For Kids event – Holiday For Hope for 2013 celebrates over 1,500 underprivileged kids and PAAJAF had celebrated 105 children at Gbawe Community in Accra, Ghana. The event was very inspirational, restoring hope and putting smiles into the faces of the children. Due to lack of funding for the event, we could not get all the gifts as we planned for them.
We managed to raise $350 through kind donations from GlobalGiving donors and used it for the event.Thank you GlobalGiving and our Donors. Merry Christmas to you all for restoring hope and putting smiles into the faces of the children at Gbawe. Without your donation, we could have not been able to organize this event.
The during the event, the children enjoyed playing indoor games – skipping ropes, singing and dancing, a debate on current affairs, and networking with each other. With your help, we made small presentation to the children which include rice, spectacles for Christmas, toffees and dress for each child.
What happens next…..? For December 21, 2014, we would like to make a big difference in the life of these children and starting from now, the preparation for the 2014 event has begun and we are call for sponsors for this event.
