Day of the African Child
Join Mercy Corps as we celebrate the Day of the African Child with the World Forestry Center and Harambee Centre in Portland, Oregon.
Day of the African Child is a day recognized throughout the world as an opportunity to reflect on progress toward health, education, equality and protection for all the continent’s children. This celebration focuses on both the cultural variety and overall spirit of Africa. The event will educate people through the celebration of music, dance, storytelling, food, and an African Marketplace. This is a great opportunity to learn about the cultures and realities of the vast and varied societies of Africa, and to build bonds of understanding, respect, and mutually beneficial relationships between people in the Pacific Northwest and people in Africa. Become familiar with the challenges and successes facing this population, and you will find plenty of ways you can help! Day of the African Child is a celebration of the diversity in all of us!
