In honor of its 21 years of existence on Thursday 12th December 2019, Love One Another Campaign organized a one-day seminar for JSS and SSS Pupils in fifteen schools across Freetown. The Seminar addressed topics ranging from; the true meaning of love, the need to show love, the importance of love, and the consequences when love is absent. Participants were divided into groups for discussions and presentations were made. At the end of the presentation, a final communiqué was drafted and adopted for further implementation. The celebration will follow series of activities, on diverse dates that are ongoing between the 15th and the 21st December 2019. These activities will include a street rally, during which, the general public will be sensitized on the importance of love in their daily lives, and in national development.
