The city of Lagos comes alive this September as ‘For The Love Of Country’ returns to Terra Kulture courtesy of ‘Slum2 School Africa’, a social advocacy group created to change the lives of children living in rural communities, and the Creative Nigeria Project to support charity efforts to raise funds for the mentorship hub for urban slums in Lagos.
The musical featuring the Crown Troupe of Africa is an interpretation of the last 100 years of Nigeria’s socio-cultural history skilfully delivered by leading musical and screen acts. It will offer the rare delight of listening to a mix of timeless Nigerian songs.
In a press release by the Curator of Creative Nigeria Project, Ferdinand Adimefe, he stated that “Investing in the lives of our children is the best way to secure our future. This is why we invite you to join the effort of ‘Slum to School’ and ‘Creative Nigeria Project’. “Through ‘the For The Love Of Country’ event, we hope to raise N10 million to establish community mentorship hubs in Makoko”.
Also, the founder of S2S, Orodaam Otto, also stated that “this event is one of the creative ways the organisation is seeking to raise fund.
With a huge team of volunteers and thousands of children taken off the streets, this mentorship hub will provide an opportunity to offer quality programs and activities that will further develop the children”.
The ‘Slum 2 School’ is a social advocacy group created to change lives, especially that of the less-privileged and orphaned children. In the last two years, they have impacted over 3000 orphans/vulnerable out-of-school children, through the provision of education scholarships and other psycho-social support programs.
The vision of the group is to transform the society by empowering disadvantaged children to realize their full potential.
Dates: Showing Sunday 23rd and 30th, September, 2014 at Terra Kulture, Tiamiyu Savage Street, Victoria Island.
