Giving Tuesday for Teenage mothers in Ajegunle

To commemorate #givingtuesday2017 which is a global day of action and an antidote to the Christmas sales, after Black Friday which seeks to encourages people to do good stuff for others, Dreams from the Slum Initiative & PadMan Initiative of the Giving Garage collaborated with the Ajegunle Community to celebrate the Global Day of Giving. 

The event which featured a special read aloud session for children and a reception for teenage girls and mothers was facilitated by Ajegunle Queen of the Run way “Benny Tontonye” and Dreams from the Slum Administrator “Onyinyechi Okechi”.

The readaloud session with the children opined their eyes to certain values they should have as children and to have empathy on others; while the reception that hosted 30 teenage girls and mothers enlightened them on their health and hygiene as majority of the girls live in the slum.

They were also taught how to make use of sanitary pads because some of them has never used a pad before.

 (They use clothes when they are ON) because they cant afford it.

They also got extra pads to give to their family or a friend as a way of teaching them to GIVE .
