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 Ten Million Naira [N10m Only] 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 educational 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. See photos below …
