Such, also, was the same event that brought the innocent Hector Pieterson of the South African Soweto uprising during the long apartheid regime to limelight. Till date, Hector has every June 16 in his memory as a hero for both young and old. Hector was shot during a peaceful protest against a 'new' education policy that was to shortchange the fate of blacks in South Africa. To this end, the annual celebration of "Day of the African Child" is in memoriam for Hector.
Global Support for Kids Initiative has overtime being in the tradition of celebrating virtues and heroism in our kids. For the year 2018, GSK Initiative has organized an public lecture in commemoration of the day to sensitize our children on virtues for social development across Ado Ekiti metropolis. The hope is to integrate children and young adults in the cause for development. The theme for this year's Day of the African Child is: LEAVE NO CHILD BEHIND IN AFRICA'S DEVELOPMENT.
