The team was led by the founder of Ariyike Arise Initiative), Nigerian Humanitarian/ Media Personality, Ariyike Akinbobola and the founder of Dreams of Brighter Days Initiative, Eric Obuh aka Vocal Slender. The slogan for their end of year outreach “Your junk is someone else’s treasure” was a reminder that if you give out those things you don’t need anymore, they will be treasured by those who do not have.
The Children jubilated as they were given the opportunity to choose what they wanted from the donated items of both new and fairly used items. Some of the Children took off their old, worn out shoes and wore the Shoes they just got from the Ariyike Arise team. The kids enjoyed themselves and went home motivated as they listened to the guest speakers talk to them about the topic of discussion: Impossible is just a word, I’m Possible.
Some of the Children under the Ariyike Arise scholarship were delighted when they met the founder and members of the Ariyike arise team. The Children also displayed their talent with a Musical Performance for the guest speakers.
The event was supported by Bellanaija, Elanred Store, Equipped to Excel, Pavian Cakes, Crystal Lenox, Plural Inc Entertainment and Mademoiselle Foundation.
