Quality Selfless Empowerment Foundation, an initiative of Queen Sekinat Elegushi, the wife of the Elegushi of Ikate Kingdom, Oba Saheed Elegushi, on the 2nd of January 2021, organized a new year party for children within the community.
This year’s edition of the children’s party celebration is the second to be organized by the foundation.
The party started in a competitive manner as the children were set up in pairs, with the winner going home with gifts.
Some of the parents at the venue who spoke to EkoCityMagazine thanked Olori Sekinat for the laudable initiative and prayed that God will strengthen her to do more.
Also, some of the children who spoke to our reporter thanked the Olori for showing love to the less privileged especially at this period.
An elated Olori Sekinat, who spoke to Ekocity Magazine, thanked God and her husband, Oba Saheed Elegushi, for the support since the foundation began.
According to the Queen, the focus of the foundation is ‘mother and child’, while they are looking to expand their reach in the coming years.
She also said the COVID-19 restriction was responsible for the few participants.
‘’Our foundation is based on mother and child, we cater for mother and child and this is new year, this is festive period where everybody wants to enjoy and be happy but we are restricted from having more people due to covid.”
Stating further, she said ‘’We hope to have this event annually and hope to grow larger.’’
On what led to the foundation, she said she is just inspired to give back to the society and reach out to the less privileged.
‘’It’s just giving back to the society, helping mothers and children,” she said.
