Miss Angel of Hope Foundation Nokuthula Nobuhle Ndlovu has underscored the need for government to continue supporting the girl child with adequate resources and opportunities for her to fulfill their dreams.

Nokuthula – who was crowned Miss Angel Of Hope Foundation during its launch – a form four student at Rose of Sharon High School in Zimre Park, Harare said the girl child lacks moral and financial support to pursue her dreams and government and other stakeholders must step forward to assist in empowering her through the provision of education, and other basic needs in life.

Nokuthula was speaking ahead of this year’s commemorations to mark the Day of the African Child.

Her school will also commemorate the day, with students from various orphanages expected to gather for performances in poem recitals, drama and music among other activities.

The theme for this years’ Day of the African Child commemorations is, “Leave no Child Behind for Africa’s Development”.
