The Kwakwaduam Association of New York over the weekend organized its annual End of year Holidays Christmas Children's Party.
Families were encouraged to bring their Children and through the Partnership with the World Vision and the Mayors Clothing Bank, Christmas gifts were distributed to the Children.
The theme and significance of the Holidays i.e. the birth of Jesus Christ was not lost to the Party as the Children were admonished to grow up and live lifes that reflect the essence of Jesus Christ
The Organization plans to launch a program specifically aimed at teaching the children Ghanaian Cultural values as well as the Ghanaian languages. It was lamented that it has been difficult to assimilate Ghanaian diasporian children into Ghanaian cultural values and languages and Kwakwaduam has on its agenda the institution of a program to do just that.
The Children were advised to study hard in school, live exemplary lives and form networks that will blossom into future opportunities. They were advised also to form networks with their counterparts in Ghana to foment future linkages.
The President of the Organization, Dr. Kwame Aniapam Boafo thanked the parents for their family support and pledged the Organization's continued commitment to encouraging parenting and the continued scholarship award scheme for College/University entrants.
The family atmosphere and the cuisine made it worthwhile.
