Every year on May 27 in Nigeria, we say ‘Happy Children’s Day’, but how many children do we really make happy? At SPAN, we’re passionate about giving hope to the hopeless and putting smiles on faces.
Last year, we met a passionate young woman, Tolu Sangosanya, who we think is doing something exceptional. She runs LOTS Charity Foundation. LOTS charity foundation is a registered charity organization that caters to the physiological [feeding, clothing and shelter], social, educational, psychological, medical, and emotional needs of street kids and vulnerable children. Their area of focus right now is Ajeromi-ifelodun local government in a community called ‘DUSTBIN ESTATE’ in Ajegunle, Lagos state, Nigeria. As its name connotes, Dustbin estate is an area of refuse; a settlement in which its inhabitants build their house with planks on refuse dumps. So these children practically live on ‘trash’ with no proper beds…. We intend to change that. Please join SPAN and LOTS this children day as we put a smile on the faces of these little angels. We believe every Child deserves a place to sleep and we plan to do so on Children’s day, May 27, 2014.
Join us by donating N7,000 [Seven Thousand Naira] to DUSTBIN ESTATE CHILDREN from LOTS foundation [http://www.lotscharityfoundation.org/] to celebrate Children’s Day with us! Each child will get a sleeping kit [A bed, Pyjama E.T.C] contact us to be a part of this Info@spanigeria.org, 01-7767726
