Celebrating National Children’s Day

Last Friday, May 15, 2015 the HELP Jamaica! Education Center celebrated National Children’s Day. This day also coincided within Child Month which is taking place during the month of May.

The Theme for this year for Child Month is “Children Safety and Security – Our Priority”
We welcomed Mr. Francois Chalifour, Vice President of Marketing at Wisynco and his son as special guests at the Education Center.  Mr. Chalifour spoke to approximately 85 children who were in attendance. His topic was on “Strangers” and who are “Safe Strangers” and the dangers brought by persons who try to persuade children to do something, like persons offering  candies to children, Drivers offering a lift/drive, wanting to give money to children, and those who encourage children to lie.  All of these were a NO, NO, NO.
In addition to that, the children and visitors (amongst them were recording artist Yung J.R. and his brother Adoney Reid) were entertained by Faya and Company of the Kingston Drummers and Jason the Clown.  There was face painting and a drumming workshop in place, ring games got played and refreshments were served to the children.

It was an very enlightening and exciting afternoon for everyone at the Education Center.
