Am grateful for your encouragement and I thank God Almighty for the vission of this insightful act. I was supper excited I could meet up to the expected number, was super excited to pack up my personal items just to be able to meet up with the expected number. It was my pleasure meeting this supper mum's and children.

Cloth give self esteem and personality, food makes you strong this I never totally understood until yesterday the 25 of Dec 2017

We gave out cloths, shoes, educational materials, food items, cooked food, drinks, head tie, Caps, candy, biscuit etc..... Happiness filled the air.

What a beautiful gesture of love towards fellow human beings, this is what we did in Pakistan as we are doing since 20 years on Christmas and believe it is a most heart warming thing to see when children and women and men smile with joy

Brilliant photo!!! :) Thanks for sharing and for your generosity and kind spirit! :) It is what makes the world so beautiful. I always believe what would be truly amazing would be to somehow make it sustainable - how could the people be better empowered to help themselves? 

Wishing you a wonderful New Year and may 2018 be a truly fantastic and inspiring year! :)  Julie

So true Mrs Julie as a peace and education advocate am focused mainly on places people don't consider or even know. I have done and still working towards running several empowerment program for the vulnerable in very rural community's.

WHY GIVING VAN

Christmas is one festivity every Nigeria dreams and works towards people regrets not been able to provide food, clothing etc..  for their families during this periods and this saddens and kill their self esteem especially their kids. I/ my sisters and had to work on Christmas so could meet up to some demands for the festivity our Dad couldn't afford. I sold veggies while other kids we at the park so I know how my family felt during this period.

In 2015 I though it wise to help and make people smile during Christmas and new year celebrations, so I picked the 25 of December as a day for people on the street who do not have whom and where or even what to celebrate with.

Giving Van at it first execution brought smiles and the excitement passed a strong message about what most mother's go through on this beautiful day especially when they are unable to afford things needed for the festivity like toys, Candy, cloths, Drinks etc. 

In 2018 am going back to this community for an employment and empowerment section linked to Home Keepers Nig a sector out to create more job opportunity and bring dignity and sanity into the domestic job sector. 

Thanks I do appreciate your insight and reminder on the necessity of empowerment for sustainable development.
