Former Upper East Regional Minister, Tangoba Abayage, has taken to her official Facebook page to reminisce about the beginning of what has now become an annual children’s party in the Upper East Region.

The activity, which commenced six years ago when Madam Tangoba was Regional Minister, has grown to become an event hundreds of children look forward to at the close of the year.

She wrote: “In 2018 when I became the Upper East Regional Minister, I decided to initiate an annual Kids Party for children at the Minister’s Residence with clear-cut objectives: To give children from poor families the opportunity to enjoy the festive season too, to give these children the opportunity to see and know firsthand the seat of the political and administrative authority of the Region, and to give them the opportunity to meet and be mentored by others who’ve gone through their shoes and succeeded.

“This first edition brought together 500 children selected from public schools in all circuits in the Bolgatanga Municipality. The following year, we had the party for 1,000 children: 500 in Bolgatanga and 500 in Navrongo, using the same criteria for selection. Eventually, when I left the residency, the annual activity moved from Bolgatanga to Navrongo, which has now become my place of residence. We have evolved since then and now move from one circuit to the other to organize these annual activities. This morning we are moving to Manyoro to meet and party with school children who have been selected from all schools in the Manyoro circuit. The children are selected by the GES with their Circuit supervisor as the liaison. Thank you to all who came through with support: big and small to help us achieve this one too.”

The 2023 edition of the annual children’s festival took place at Manyoro, where more than 600 children were fed and entertained.

“Yesterday all our roads led to Manyoro where more than 600 children and about 50 adults were feasted. Children came from all schools within the circuit: Natugnia, Gumongo, Saforo, Manyoro itself, and others. Not a single child was left unhappy, including even those who were not on the official list. We danced, drank, chewed, and ate. The grown-ups were also not left out, and at the end of the day, one didn’t know a grown-up from a child. The atmosphere yesterday was extremely euphoric, and I’m glad we chose Manyoro as our destination. Our only minus was that the kids were not informed by GES to come in their school uniforms, but that stopped nothing from happening, and it was indeed lit.”

The former Upper East Regional thanked some organizations and individuals who have supported the organization of the event.

“Let me wholeheartedly thank all who supported us to ensure this pulled through: LESKEN LTD, Aquabolg Natural Mineral WATER, Dr. Emmanuel Bortey Borketey, Chairman Peter Mac Manu, Mrs. Elizabeth Awuni Winner, Mr. Tachega Washington Tims, Dr. Albert Awopone, Alhaji Abdallah Otito (NPP PC for Navrongo Central), and the three donors who will rather remain anonymous.”
