Naming is an important right for every child. Although in most African traditional societies kids are names after special occasions, seasons or even after their ancestors, nowadays things are changing.

Most parents give their children fancy names. Some have meanings while others don’t. In a few years to come, names like Esther, Joyce, Alice, Joshua, Daniel, Patrick will be extinct.

#FBF – Huru has grown so much from the time this picture was taken. He’s now fully at that stage where playing with mud is THE main plan 🤦🏾‍♀️ I mean it’s great, but the germaphobe in me is now always on standby with #Lifebuoy. The fact that millions of children under 5 are affected by diseases because of not hand washing with soap, is shocking. It’s sad. It doesn’t have to be the case! Follow Lifebuoy on our journey to make hand washing with soap second nature in our society. Also see the work that organizations like @sisterspeaks254 are doing to empower women and girls with sanitary pad kits which include soap (check my insta stories), something that will continue to amplify this message! #helpachildreach5
