Annually and in the month of May, a group of young Akwa Ibomites based in the United States of America, under the auspices of Ayaya Association head back to their state of origin to give back to their home community and special way of marking the children day celebration in Nigeria.
This year, the team which was made up of over 15 persons embarked on their 5th trip since inception of the association and reached out to children in over 10 orphanages scattered across the three senatorial districts of Akwa Ibom state. It was a weeklong visit, as they made donations of food items, educational materials, toiletries and drugs to the various homes.
Moreso, the group took out time to spend quality time with the kids at the orphanages, engaging them with various activities which include; football, show of singing talents, dancing competition, career counselling, even taking them through crash lessons on build and fly drones.
