14 November 2011 | General News

Accra, Nov 14, GNA - Master Andrew Adansi Bonnah, the 11 year-old initiator of Save Somali Children From Hunger Project, is to visit South Africa to meet with an African Assembly of 20 Child Ambassadors to deliberate on the “Plight of the Girl-Child Soldier in Africa” and its eradication.

The visit, which is at the invitation of the African Centre for Constructive Resolution to Disputes (ACCORD) based in Durban, South Africa, would host other 11 year old child ambassadors, selected from countries that were in conflict or emerged from conflicts in Africa.

A statement to the Ghana News Agency singed by Mr Koblah Asamani, Technical Advising Director to the Master Bonnah on Monday said the event, which falls on November 20th this month, marks Universal Children's Day declared by the UN in the year 1954.

The conference, being organized by ACCORD in partnership with the Office of the Resident Coordinator of the United Nations in South Africa, would also be attended by the Chair of ACCORD's Board of Trustees, Mrs. Graca Machel.

Master Bonnah's address is expected to stress on Africa Unity, with emphasize on lessons learnt from Somalia crises that calls for peace making, peace building, peacekeeping, postwar reconstruction focusing on compulsory free and accessible basic education, food security, adequate health care, regenerative health and nutrition, as well as shelter.

He would also speak on the protection of the African child from all forms of abuses as enshrined in the UN declaration on the rights of the child.

Andrew who had pledged to promote Africa's Future Restoration would make a presentation at the Pretoria conference after his “bogging speech” at the African Union Donor Pledging Conference in Addis Ababa on August 25 this year, where he promised to raise million for the children of Somalia.

He would also pay a courtesy call on Former President Nelson Mandela. He would be accompanied on the trip by his father, Mr. Samuel Adansi-Bonnah and Mr Asamani.

The trip is funded by ACCORD, a non-governmental civil society institution with its headquarters in Durban, South Africa and works throughout the African Continent in the field of innovative and effective conflict prevention, management and resolution for the past 19 years.
