Point Hope’s Christmas party held for deprived children

Point Hope Ghana, a branch of an international non-governmental organisation (NGO) Point Hope, over the weekend organised a pre – Christmas party for children of Point Hope D/A primary at Buduburam camp in the Central region.

The gesture was part of the NGO’s giant commitment to giving back to society and helping the needy, especially children.

Children at the school were treated to good food and drinks as well as other Christmas gifts.

According to the Founder, Point Hope, Delilah Rene, the purpose of the party was to allow the NGO to interact with the less-privileged children and share the season’s love with them.

“There is nobody at home who is ready to share love, joy, gift and peace with these kids as most of us do, and as citizens of the communities we owe it a duty to share this season’s love with them so that they would also feel loved.”

“Let me indicated that, showing care to the children would make them feel part of the society,” she said.

She added that our hearts should be filled with joy and humility to know the one who created everything that exists birth is being remembered as the king of kings for this yuletide.

The team encouraged the kids to be diligent in all their endeavours saying it is through this they will attain greatness.

Point Hope Ghana believes that children deserve a safe and comfortable lifestyle that would promote their intellectual capacity and physical wellbeing, enhance the need for parents to take full responsibility for their children upbringing.

The NGO has been one of the premium backbones of the several foreign nationals at the Buduburam camp, and they are optimistic to fostering stability through authentic relationships and partnering with other development agencies to bring smiles to many lost lives around the continents.

“We ran livelihood programmes as a sustainable means of improving and empowering the lives of individuals with some skills training, with different category of skills training in diverse areas such as electricals, tailoring, hairdressing, embroidery, bead making batik tye & dye, soap making, all in the bid to build the individual's potential and competence”, Adam Sandow, Point Hope Ghana, In- Country Director, told the B&FT.

Mr Sandow added: “We are also doing our best to come up with creative and renovative ideologies which are timely. For instance, instead of training people on replacement of parts to a partnership we will train people on producing that part to be replaced”, he noted.

The Headmistress of the school Ms Elizabeth Waldron Ansah thanked the NGO which shares the same name with the school for their kind gesture and continues support to the school.
