LAGOS-As it is always said, “Children are gift from God and the future of tomorrow”. Indeed, every May 27 all over the world, children are celebrated and given the notion that their future are bright. This view, most time motivates children to live up to moral values and ethics. This was one of the reasons Jakin NGO, gathered children from different communities (grassroot) and schools across Lagos State, to put smile on their faces and show them that, what the future hold cannot be compromised by any loving person. Therefore, children should be given ultimate priority in the society.

Interesting, many of the kids are members of Jakin children’s club , she added.
Also, she called on the government and corporate organisation to never relent towards supporting the NGO, as it will go a long way in sustaining social welfare for the society.
