The Fountain of Praise’s Worship for Change Concert held on the 31st of October 2010 at the Shell Hall of the Muson Centre. This benefit concert is organised annually to raise awareness and help for a foundation that deals with children with special needs. This year’s event was arranged for the Dustbin Estate Children of The Future Awards winner, Tolu Sangosanya (Best Use of Advocacy 2010).
The concert is organised by popular Pastor and Christian Worship leader, Wale Adenuga. It also had performances by John Chisum, Eben, Sola Allyson, BOUQUI, Gaise, Adorunbo, Wale Adenuga and Kunle Fadahunsi. Ali Baba and Saco also made special appearances.
Speaking on this, Sangosanya says, “It is a good thing that more and more people are rising to the challenge of giving our children a better life. We hope that this concert and the work of The Future Awards 2011 would help draw attention to the plight of the Dustbin Estate Children and particularly assist us in building a resource centre for them.”
Every year, The Future Awards selects a charity to work with. Using the advantage garnered by its reputation, media attention is drawn to the selected charity. Adebola Williams, Operations Director of The Future Awards, notes, “As a winner of The Future Awards, Tolu Sangosanya is a part of our family. We believe in her dreams and we are putting our all our support to ensuring she attains her goal of building a resource centre for these children.”
Characteristically, The Future Awards holds an Invitation-Only Nominee’s reception prior to the Awards Night to unveil the nominees for each year’s awards. During this even, the selected charity is featured. This year’s Nominee’s Reception is scheduled for 19th December and the activities of the Dustbin Estate, particularly the ongoing campaign for a resource centre, will be featured.
Before and after the by-invitation-only event, you can support building the resource centre by contributing funds to the Dustbin Estate Children account.
