Day of the African Child: More than an event…

One of the biggest threats with any commemoration is that they may run the risk of becoming mere events which easily get forgotten only to be remembered when the next event is on.

But if there is one commemoration that should never be tucked away until the next one, it is the Day of the African Child, which was commemorated on Saturday.

Former South Africa President Nelson Mandela may not have been specific on the African child, but he was nevertheless spot-on when he said: “There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”
He undoubtedly understands the unique position of a child!.
