Heart to Heart Ministry; an non-governmental organisation established to empower and build bright futures for Gambian children recently organized a daylong seminar to empower children at the SOS Children’s Village in Bakoteh. Liberty Declaration led the seminar in collaboration with Triple -D Foundation on the theme: Confidence and self-esteem.

Rev. Shaka said God created people for several reasons, saying that there are many problems in the world that were created for each individual to solve.

He said people need to believe in themselves and have the trust that everything is possible and every dream is achievable, advising the children not to be afraid of what they want to be in future.

He also urged students to avoid watching TV during school days to avoid peer influence and distractions that can lead to failure and procrastination. 

Racheal Shadara, Olimatou Ceesay and Emmanuel Oweyemi all urged the children to be persistent, focused, and prayerful to God.

The trio advised children to follow their educational pursuit to become better ambassadors of their communities and the country.

Director of SOS Children’s Village Haddy Touray expressed appreciation to Heart to Heart Ministry for their tireless efforts in rendering support to the children.
