Ngaoundéré: Regional President of Women and Girls' Association Speaks on African Child's Day



The Regional President of Women and Girls Association Adamawa AFFADA, Dame AISSATOU MOUHAMADOU, on occasion of the Day of the African Child made a statement on Tuesday, June 15, 2021, promising to improve on the living conditions of children in the Adamawa Region.

"The efforts made by AFFADA in the region to improve the living conditions of children should not be neglected, but it is clear that many challenges are yet to be met", underlines Dame AISSATOU MOUHAMADOU.

"Let us understand that the promotion and protection of the rights of the child cannot be achieved if we all do not get down to work," she concluded.

She relates AFFADA's efforts to the Day of the African Child (JEA) celebrated under the theme: “30 years after the adoption of the charter: let's accelerate the implementation of the 2040 agenda for an Africa fit for children”.

Just like the entire country, the Adamawa region celebrated the Day of the African Child, which was established on June 16, 1991 by the Organization of African Unity, now the African Union.

It was in memory of the massacre of hundreds of children, during a march to demand their rights in Soweto (South Africa).

In her statement, the Regional president of AFFADA recalled that Africa's 2040 agenda is the result of the conclusions of a high-level conference, held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on November 20 and 21, 2015.

This was part of the 25th anniversary of the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child. For her, the association which leads in Adamawa is making efforts in the direction of accelerating the implementation of this agenda and its process.
