The Day of the African Child (DAC) is commemorated every year on 16 June by Member States of the African Union (AU), and its Partners (in accordance with Resolution CM/Res.1290 (XL). This occasion is firstly a commemoration to recall the 1976 uprising s in Soweto, when a protest by school children in South Africa against apartheid –inspired education resulted in the public killing of these unarmed young protesters by police officials.

The DAC further presents an opportunity to focus on the work of all actors committed to the rights of children on the continent, to consolidate their efforts in addressing the obstacles for realizing these rights. The DAC also provides an occasion for Governments, International Institutions and Communities to renew their on-going commitments towards improving the plight of children by organizing activities aimed at including them.

The representative also throw little light on the computer and holiday classes SODEIT will offer. She encouraged the parents to send their children to attend it.

Friends, Donors and Supporters,

School-age children in our communities need a good diet in order to develop, grow healthy, learn, protected from diseases, and to have enough energy to get through the daily life activities. For their futures and their own children’s futures, they need not only to eat well, but also to learn how to eat well, and how to grow their own vegetables and fruits.

In past two months, we had three volunteers reviewing our curriculum and family visits. 6 from our 9 schools have been successful in inspiring vegetable gardens, school farms and good eating habits in the family circules. 75% of family visited, appreciated our efforts, that their children are asking for a balance plate and vegetable gardens.

Our Secrets of success are we respect local expertise and taste, provide familiar produce, propose small acceptable changes, and show clear links to children’s health and food preferences.

We partner with you to help ensure this happens.

Thank you.
