It’s time for Africa!

May 25 is the date set for Africa Day. It all started with the founding of the Organization of African Unity on May 25, 1963, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. After that, the organization was changed to the African Union in 2002, and it aims for the freedom of the African continent from foreign dominance and exploitation ( But of course, now, the aim would be a more positive approach to how each country can contribute to its own development and growth.

The annual commemoration of Africa Day raised awareness among children about Africa. Maputo International College focused the celebration on the traditional dress, which was somehow fused with modern motifs. The design of clothes and even dances was indeed improved to a more modern style.

The modern style of clothes fused with African traditional dresses was showcased at the celebration. Each grade level was given time to do a catwalk on stage and present their dresses. After that, they danced to their African tune. It was so vibrant that even the audience was dancing.

Mr. and Miss Africa were chosen afterward from each grade level. Everyone could see how beautiful the children were when all the winners from each level were presented. It was phenomenal.
