After the Bouaké Children's Home and the Kaloukro Girls' Training Center, the Children Of Africa Foundation made donations to the Bouaké nursery and rehabilitation center for minors on Thursday, May 20, 2021.
In the afternoon of Thursday, May 20, the delegation of the Children Of Africa Foundation led by Mrs. Beatrice Durand, Head of Social Affairs, went first to the Bouaké nursery, then to the Center for the Rehabilitation of Minors, the reception center built by the Children Of Africa Foundation for children in conflict with the law and in difficult situations.
On behalf of Mrs. Dominique Ouattara, the delegation offered gifts consisting of food, hygiene materials and products for babies, sets of games, training materials for sewing and hairdressing, as well as clothing, sets of jerseys and basketballs to the children of the nursery and young residents of the Center for the Rehabilitation of Minors in Bouaké.
It is by the nursery of Bouaké that these visits started for the biggest happiness of the babies.
Mrs. Durand Béatrice, responsible for social affairs of the Children Of Africa Foundation recalled the attachment of the President of Children Of Africa to these little ones of the Bouaké nursery.
Konan Ezechias, a third grade student and resident of the nursery thanked Mrs. Dominique Ouattara for her commitment to their well-being.
Mrs. Djebré Leocadie, Director of the nursery presented the institution to her visitors. According to her, the Bouaké nursery was created in 1974. It offers room and board to 46 infants including 21 girls and 24 boys.
After this step, the center for the reintegration of minors in Bouaké welcomed the collaborators of Mrs. Dominique Ouattara.

Just like at the nursery, the delegation of the Children Of Africa Foundation offered gifts of training equipment in the field of hairdressing, sewing, school bags, clothes and basketballs to the residents of the center.
Mrs. Durand Beatrice also urged the children of this center to be courageous in order to get out of this unfortunate impasse. She urged them to seize the chance that the opportunity to be in the center offers them. As a mother, she begged them to resist the temptation to return to the street.
Mrs. Cissé Aïssatou, in charge of Training and Education at the Children Of Africa Foundation, urged them to seize the opportunity offered to them by the reception center to learn a trade. According to her, this opportunity gives them the chance to make a new start in life with the guarantee of having a job.
The children in return demonstrated their skills through ballets and songs.
The ceremony ended with a visit to the residents' workshops.
The center has a total of 53 children of which 45 are in permanent residence.
