The Annual Easter Programme, organized by the Owia/Point Community Partnership Group (OP/CPG) commenced on Friday, targeting children from the communities of Owia and Point.
A release from the Ministry of Agriculture says the program will run through to April 15th at the Owia Government School.
The organizers say this year’s activities will continue to focus on child abuse, following the success of last year’s efforts.
The activities are being held to commemorate Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention month, and to enlighten the community on issues faced by children on a daily basis.
The Owia Children’s Easter Program will close on Tuesday with a mini exhibition. This is the third children’s program put on by the group as part of its contribution toward the building of the community.
The OP/CPG is one of the three community groups formed through the assistance of the Rural Transformation Unit in the Ministry of Agriculture, to assist with the development of social, human, infrastructural and economic capacities within rural communities.
