This Sunday marks the International Day of Friendship for 2017.
As explained by the United Nations:
‘Our world face many challenges, crises and forces of division — such as poverty, violence, and human rights abuses — among many others — that undermine peace, security, development and social harmony among the world's peoples.
To confront those crises and challenges, their root causes must be addressed by promoting and defending a shared spirit of human solidarity that takes many forms — the simplest of which is friendship.
Through friendship — by accumulating bonds of camaraderie and developing strong ties of trust — we can contribute to the fundamental shifts that are urgently needed to achieve lasting stability, weave a safety net that will protect us all, and generate passion for a better world where all are united for the greater good.’
Today, we want to thank all our friends and supporters who make the work we do possible. Without your support, we wouldn’t have been able to achieve the lasting impact we have; transforming tens of thousands of lives so we can break the cycle of poverty and build a brighter future for the northern Ghana’s next generation.
A huge thank you to friends at People’s Postcode Lottery, Pears Foundation, The ALMT, Alquity Investment Management and City & Guilds Group, amongst many others, for bringing big smiles to the little faces of children like Sixtus.
