Do Sumthing Positive for Africa Charity BenefitFeed a child Project

DSPA had a successful event in 2006. We received support from Family,friends, musicians and a few young volunteers who also participated in the talent and fashion show. The proceeds received by DSPA were donated to the Friends of the Disabled Charity, towards the purchase of equipment to create jobs and opportunities for them.

Dumebi Agbakoba, Founder and Director of DSPA Project has been nominated twice at the Future Awards, Nigeria for best use of goodwill and has been recognized for her contributions to helping the under privileged youths.

The main purpose of the charity event is to bring together members of the public, especially well meaning Nigerians, on a particular day and have them pledge their enabling positive resources towards the DSPA project. This charity event will be held on the 17th of October 2008, it will be a high profile event to celebrate and recognize Nigerians Icons and showcase the collection of a diverse range of designers including Award winning Samantha Cole. Talented upcoming designers, Baruch, Esther's Bags, Omar Mansoor and Yetty D.

The Cause

The second project involves financial support for the upkeep of young children to alleviate them from hunger in Nigeria
