The Smiles on their Faces Are So Precious! Nigerian Designer Ayo Van Elmar Gives Clothes to Children with Her Sunshine Project



Last year, BellaNaija published the feature on Nigerian designer, Ayo Van Elmar who is based in Austria. {click here if you missed it} Ayo and her team, under The Sunshine Project, provided  clothes and shoes for less privileged children in schools in Nigeria last Christmas.

We are pleased to note that her team has grown as more people are helping out. We are glad to be showcasing this, in order to encourage the good work being done.

      The crew went to the schools to dress up the kids? Would you rather have gone to their homes?
      One child after another?
