Celebrating childhood on Nov 14 – Children’s Day

Following the presentation; competitions were organised for children on poem-writing, drawing and oratorical events.

This gathering was unique in helping them understand the rights they enjoy, learn the rights that are denied and celebrating being children with peers orphan children.
