May 27th, 2013 was Children’s Day in Nigeria, and Nigeria’s Online Megastore, Konga.com in collaboration with Triple X entertainment, Access Bank, First Aluminum and other Nigerian brands organized a Children’s day event to put smiles on the faces of 5000 kids at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos.
The event which had several dignitaries from the Lagos state government in attendance was full of laughter and fun fare as the kids had a lot to eat, drink and with several other side attractions like games, music and face painting provided by the sponsors.
The major aim of the event was to ensure that these children who would have spent the day on the streets or in many other unsavory locations could all come together under one umbrella and experience love, laughter and hope which the konga brand represents.
Several members of staff of konga.com assembled at the venue of the event as early as 10am and worked with other volunteers to ensure that the children were properly dressed and prepared for the full day event.
According to Ifeanyi Abraham, Public Relations Strategist at konga.com, “Our major aim for this event is to put smiles on the faces of kids and show them that society actually cares about them, today more than 5000 kids have been encouraged, and the smiles on their faces will stay with us forever.”
There is also a 50% price slash on selected children’s items on konga.com/childrensday right now.
