African Art And Culture Celebrates Mother's Day With Style

African Arts & Culture Development Company Ltd (AACD – AFRICAN MARKET) say AYEKOO to ALL OUR MOTHERS. A heathy Mother makes a happy family.

INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT MOTHERS DAY:

The history of Mother’s Day started with peacemaker Ann Jarvis. During and following the Civil War, Ann Jarvis made a concerted effort to foster friendship and community between the mothers on both sides of the war and also to teach local women how to properly care for their children.

She started a committee in 1868 which established the first glimmer of today’s holiday: “Mother’s Friendship Day.”
After Anna Jarvis successfully held her first Mother’s Day, she sought to make it a national celebration.
After years of lobbying, she finally got the attention of President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. He proclaimed that the second Sunday in May, no matter what the date, would belong to moms across the nation.

Later, Anna Jarvis ended up hating Mother’s Day not because she never got to celebrate it herself but soon after President Wilson declared Mother’s Day a national holiday, it became insanely commercialized (like it is today). Anna Jarvis actually campaigned to have Mother’s Day rescinded. She failed at that effort and was committed to a sanitarium instead in the 1940s. Anna Jarvis, though she founded the modern American concept of Mother’s Day, remained unmarried and childless throughout her entire life.

Tracy Sarkcess And Menaye Donkor Donates 1,000 Sanitary Pads To Female JHS Students

Published

on

Tracy Sarkcess, rapper Sarkodie’s wife and footballer Sulley Muntari’s wife, Menaye Donkor have partnered up on a charity project dubbed #SincerelyBRAVEProject.

The main aim of the project is to donate sanitary pads to menstruating females in rural areas.

Tracy in a post on Instagram said the idea of the project came after she was informed about the rampant cases of teenage pregnancy in Minya in Ningo-Prampram.

She stated that the person who made her to know of the social canker said due to the teen girls’ inability to meet some of their basic needs such as buying sanitary pads, some men take advantage of them and it normally ends in pregnancy for the little girls.

At the back of these, Tracy and Menaye have taken it upon themselves to do donations of sanitary pads from time to time to various rural areas.

In her words, she wrote:

“#EndPeriodPoverty #ASincerelyBRAVEProject

The genesis of the #SincerelyBRAVEProject and donation to the community of Minya in Ningo-Prampram started with Faustina Boamah, a midwife who attended our digital skills workshop last year in Oct.

Faustina told me about the Minya community and the dire situation there. The community is faced with rampant cases of teenage pregnancies. The young girls are usually exploited by the men in the community, mostly due to the lack of easy access to some basic needs such as sanitary pads and school necessities, etc.

My team and I decided to search and partner with a sanitary pad brand, that is fresh, has that big “sister appeal” and also willing to collaborate with us to make a meaningful impact. Sincerely Pads by Menaye, was the perfect partner, hence the SincerelyBRAVE Project.

For our visit to Minya, Sincerely pads provided us with over a 1000 pads. In support of this initiative was our resource person, @dr.hannahlisa, who engaged the girls on issues such as menstrual hygiene, sexual reproductive health and abstinence.

@menayedonkor and myself will be embarking on various such activities over the next couple of months. A big thank you to all our team members and everyone who helped to make this a success.”
