Wema Centre was founded in 1993 to focus on rescue & support of street children, more so girls. On 1st September 2018 we marked the 25th anniversary since its inception. Every year Wema Centre anniversaries are used as our annual birthday events for all Wema Children. This begun in 2008 & was necessitated by the fact that most of the children under the care of Wema Centre don’t know their exact date of birth & only get to hear about birthday parties from friends & school mates.
It is an event that therefore goes a long way to acknowledge Wema Centre’s growth & achievement in the field of child protection as well as give the children a platform to celebrate sense of identity & belonging within our community.
The event has always drawn good support from friends of Wema with the key supporter being Voyager Beach Resort, which sponsors the big birthday cake, food, snacks, bouncing castle and entertainment. The Nyali Cinemax also gives the children a movie treat to spice up the birthday. In addition, the Brookside Company also provides the children with milk and yoghurt.
