As the rest of the world celebrated Children’s Day, Buyology.com.ng spent the special day dedicated to kids, with the children at Makoko.
www.buyology.com.ng “a leading e-retailer (electronic retail store)” partnered with number of NGO’s including Slum2School, Youths Participatory Development Initiative and Photography for Change initiative to celebrate Children’s day with the less privileged children in the slums of Makoko. Included in the celebration was the ‘Photograph a Child’ project, with 100 professional photographers telling the stories of 100 children in the Makoko area through pictures, to help create awareness of the plight of the less privileged children.
Many kids from privileged homes would be opportune to go to choice places to celebrate their day but there are the “not-so-privileged” ones who usually miss out on the fun and excitement of being celebrated on such a remarkable day hence the need for project ‘Photograph a Child’.
The children to be photographed are beneficiaries of the Slum 2 School project and Buyology.com.ng believes that with their collaboration, they were able to make a positive difference and sustainable impact in the lives of these children. They met with the children, contributed educational materials and food items to them.
See some photos from their visit.
