Scores of children from motherly love foundation last friday were treated with fun-filled activities at the La palm Beach Hotel by Adwoa Safo foundation in collaboration with Young Tribe.
Adwoa Safo, the founder of Adwoa Safo foundation and a member of parliament for Dome-kwabenya said the objective of the children’s party was to provide an opportunity for children particularly the less-priviledged in society to be equally touched and recognised with smiles on their faces as any other person in society at the end of the year and during the celebration of her birthday.

she also appealed to people especially corporate bodies to extend a helping hand to vulnerable children in society as they constitute the human resource base of the country.
The CEO of Young Tribe, Mr. Dexter Winful on his part said the foundation seeks to among other things unearth young talents and provide a platform where they would be equipped with practical skills in areas such as music, multimedia, tech among others.
He noted that even though Young Tribe is a start up NGO, it will give opportunity for less-priviledged children to socialise, for instance, play, drink, eat, dance etc. apart from equipping them with skills.
saying ” some children are finding it difficult to express their talents for various reasons and so we would continue to support them with fun character and confidence building activities with many more events planned for 2020″.Mr. Winful also commended Adwoa Safo foundation for supporting ‘Young Tribe’ and continuously working in this area despite the challenges.
