The annual Great Hope Walk, an initiative of Hope Worldwide Nigeria (HWWN), a non-governmental, non-profit organization, have slated this year’s edition of the walk for Saturday, December 3rd 2011, with the theme “Support a child, build a great nation”.

The annual event which is in its 11th year running, amongst other things, seeks to raise funds towards meeting the educational, health and nutritional needs of children as well as sensitize Nigerians on the plight of orphans and vulnerable children in our society.

Speaking at the press briefing at HWWN headquarters in Lagos yesterday, the CEO, Hope Worldwide Nigeria (HWWN), Mr. Olaosebikan Clement, stated that the GHW has expanded from just a 10 kilometer walk in Lagos, to a national event attracting thousands of participants in 10 cities in Nigeria including the Federal Capital Territory.

He revealed that “Nigeria has one of the largest burdens of Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) in the world. “This year’s walk, which would attract well over 10, 000 participants, would further increase awareness and galvanize action towards the case of abused, trafficked and children on the streets” he stated.
