About Day of the African Child

The Day of the African Child is commemorated every year on 16 June by Member States of the African Union (AU), and its Partners (in accordance with Resolution CM/Res.1290 (XL).

This occasion is firstly a commemoration to recall the 1976 uprising s in Soweto, when a protest by school children in South Africa against apartheid –inspired education resulted in the public killing of these unarmed young protesters by police officials.

The DoAC further presents an opportunity to focus on the work of all actors committed to the rights of children on the continent, to consolidate their efforts in addressing the obstacles for realizing these rights. The DoAC also provides an occasion for Governments, International Institutions and Communities to renew their on-going commitments towards improving the plight of children by organizing activities aimed at including them.

Every year a theme is identified by the Committee and adopted by the Executive Council. During its 23rd Ordinary Session in April 2014,the Committee identified and adopted the theme for the Day of the African Child (DAC ) 2015 :- “25 Years after the Adoption of the African Children’s Charter: Accelerating our Collective Efforts to End Child Marriage in Africa” which will be commemorated  by bringing together those affected by and working to end child marriage such as community leaders, traditional, religious leaders, girls affected by child marriage and key stakeholders.


  Lift your banners high!

   Work for justice and for peace.
  Lift your banners high!

   May our friendship never cease.
  Lift your banners high!

   We will sing in ev’ry land.

   Lift your banners high!

   For in Jesus' name we stand

Lyrics from Sheila Wilsons’s ‘Hosanna Rock’

Welcome to the Schools section of the Warwick-Bo One World Link.

 We are a group of volunteers here in Warwick District who are trying to support the efforts of working teachers in our linked schools.  

 We keep them informed of OWL activities, facilitate meetings for them to share experiences and difficulties, arrange visitors, produce teaching materials and resources, give lessons and assemblies; and generally do what we can to nurture our school links with Bo Town in Sierra Leone.

Hope you have had a really refreshing holiday. We are excited to be facilitating visits with Bo again this year so we hope your school will want to get involved.

 Thursday 22nd September 4pm at Emscote Infants, All Saints Rd, Warwick CV34 5NH

Termly planning meeting. Please ensure a teacher from your school attends this important planning meeting.


10-14 October - hopefully 3 Bo teachers will be here visiting schools, please let Liz know MOB: 07773704848 if you can host (B&B for a few nights or an evening meal) between 7 - 17 October (dates TBC as flights/visas not yet confirmed)

 Best wishes,
