  On Wednesday, 19th February 2013,at about 11.30 am we arrived at Ugiagbe Primary school of Evbotubu Community.The children were having a break and they were all very excited about our visit. We, the ACD -Team ( Amanda,Julie,Mai) brought a local tailor to the school to make measurements of orphans and vulnerable children to get them proper school uniforms tailored.There were too many children that were wearing school uniforms in very bad conditions but as we only have a limited budget.To understand the importance of school uniforms in Nigeria it is essential to know that those constitute the foundation for a proper education.Without a school uniform children are sent home.They are not able to get education to have the best preconditions for an independent life. We were able to make measurements of 16 pupils.When hope to be able to proceed quickly that the children get their school uniforms as soon as possible. we still have 12 more children  on our list who  still  needs  uniforms , but these ones will have to wait till we are able to raise more funds. we want to say a big thank you to all who gave to help to keep these children in school.

In line with our going project of keeping 200 orphans in school , Staffs and volunteers at Action For Community Development decided  on the 16th of december 2012 to provide psychosocial support for the orphans. This is very important in helping to keeping the children motivated to wanting to remain in school in complete their Education. Since this  holiday  period is a time of celebration. A time of  Joy and laughter, a time to show love and care  and time to give and recieve .We decieded also to include those in secondary school in the celebration. The christmas celebration had alot of activities lined out like sing and dancing time, recieving of gifts , refreshment time. The children sang christmas songs while some of the older one played the instruments like drums and cymbals.  Father Christmas was on Ground to give gifts to all children present. The children were later given refreshment of food and drinks. when some of the children were asked how they saw the celebration, they were overjoyed. Some said it was their first time of seeing Father Christmas(Santa Claus) and they were very glad that we brought Father Christmas to see them. One of the pupil sophia said " I am happy to see father christmas ". We THANK all those that  are continally given to this project. We will not be able to make this impact without YOU.
