“I’ve never heard of a person who gave and helped another without receiving it in a thousand folds”
I can tell you’re wondering what HOPE means in this context and why it’s even a project. Well HOPE here means Having Only Positive Expectations and it’s a project by Queen Uyai (Face of Fashion Africa 2018). She came up with this initiative to give back to the society in her own little way. She aims to empower youths, women, and men through the project too.
Kicking off with three Orphanages in Abuja, Project HOPE had it’s first official outreach visiting the kids in two different orphanages at Lugbe and one at Apo. Whilst visiting, the kids at the orphanage were taught Face painting and Ankara crafts. The team also left them with foodstuffs, clothing and provisions.
The welcoming was so beautiful and warming; I was so delighted to be in their midst! Although, my visit almost got me to a point of questioning so many things (like why will anyone abandon their own child, why do our parents have to leave us and a whole lot more) I cautioned my mind immediately to focus on the goods things only. And i’m just going to say that the people who don’t have the most are the happiest and most content.
Watching the kids pray, was the highlight of my visit. I was so impressed at how these kids are being brought up in the way of God. I couldn’t even get over the respect they all had, and oh! how so brilliant they are. (My ovaries… lol).
I’m grateful to have been a part of this project and i’m also thankful to Queen Uyai for answering this great call and coming up with such an awesome project.
I look forward to doing more of this and I look forward to seeing the kids at the top too! I pray that the Almighty who has brought them to this world will continue to be with them and hold their hands through it all. God bless the entire Project HOPE team.
Spread love always guys.
until my next post.
