On the 16th of June Dynamic Community Impact Organization participated in the commemoration of the International Day of the African Child at Maendeleo Primary School, located at Kahe- ward (Moshi district in Kilimanjaro region).
The International Day of the African Child event attracted many children: more than 600 children from different schools attended the event. The guest of honour was Mrs. Beatric Mwinuka, the Rural Planner Officer in Moshi District. The other guests consisted of community development officers, district development officers, social welfare officers and parents.
We are happy to be one of the organizations that supports children and gives them a platform to sing, dance and perform plays. Our aim is to empower children by making them happy. Their messages are important to us. The children didn’t only have fun, but they also received indirect awareness lessons through some songs and plays. The students performed plays which had powerful messages that addressed topics such as: child abuse, early pregnancy, dropping out of school and child rape. The message is delivered in an entertaining, not in boring way and also makes an impact.
The theme of this year states that “Children are the foundation of the Nation. We should protect, care and develop them”. In Swahili it’s written as: “Mtoto ni msingi wa Taifa Endelevu; tumtunze, tumlinde na kumwendeleza”.
Dynamic Community Impact Organization will keep ensuring that more events like this will take place. We are excited to organize and participate in child rights events. We believe in youth as one of the key agents to bring positive changes in our society.
