Community Updates 2013: Bagbo ADP

Last, but not least, I received a few photos from the Bagbo ADP, which is Sierra Leone. This is the community that my boy Abu-Bakarr attends. This ADP does not provide too many photos, but I am grateful to get the few that they do provide.

Children were given a platform to speak loudly about Child Rights. This photo was sent with a direct quote from this lovely lady. Here is what she said: 

''Praise us for the little efforts we make, and we may believe that you care for us. Criticize without gently correcting us, and we may not like you. Violate our rights, and we may not forgive you. Encourage us, and we may not forget you.''

The Gender & Child Protection committee gathered to follow-up child abuse and domestic violence cases. This group hopes to bring about change so that less violence occurs in the home. 

Wheelchairs, and other materials for children with disabilities, were provided so that these children will be able to attend school.
