The Executive Coordinator of the Sfano Musical Production and Entertainment Association, Mr. Sfano Njawa Sesay, was on television last Friday on the Sierra Leone Broadcasting Cooperation ‘Good Morning’ progamme. During the programme he disclosed to the pubic his association’s decision to further support the ‘Heal the World’ initiative created by Michael.
“The ‘Heal the World’ initiative was designed to support youths and children around the world,” said Sfano.
It began in Sierra Leone in 2002 and had some administration difficulties, so did not flourish, but General Sfano would like to carry on with that work inspired by Michael’s ambition to help children around the world.
The executive management and members of his association agreed to further the children’s care initiative in consultation with the family members of Michael, Sfano disclosed. He also added that he intends to take a musical tour named, ‘Michael Jackson/Sfano Children’s Development Fund Musical Tour,’ globally to countries that have been affected by either natural or man-made disaster and that severely affected the peaceful co-existence of the people especially women and the children. This tour began on December 18th, 2009 at the Orthodox Christian Junior Secondary School and has been successfully implemented in Albert Academy Secondary School, Excel International Secondary School, Methodist Girls High School and most recently Great Vision International Private School in Freetown.
General Sfano revealed that the sole aim of the programme is to promote the rights of vulnerable school going children, encouraging the staff welfare association of these schools and also raising awareness on health prevention and care regarding HIV/AIDS among students.
