For its 20th anniversary, the Children of Africa Foundation held its 7th charity gala dinner Friday night March 16th, 2018 at the Sofitel Hotel Ivoire's congress center in Cocody - Ivory Coast - in the presence of Laurence Jenkell.

 

 

 

 

This humanitarian meeting brought together on the edge of the Ebrié Lagoon more than 900 personalities from around the world, including luminaries from the world of cinema, that of music, sport, business, politics or all the elites of Ivorian high society.

Among them were Dr. Lalla Malika Issoufou as guest of honor, Isabelle Adjani, Patrick Bruel, Patience Dabany, Youssou N'Dour, King of M'balax, Coumba Gawlo, Nathalie Baye, Isaac Bankole, Richard Berry, MC Solaar, Gary Dourdan, First Lady Dominique Ouattara, President-Founder of Children of Africa and Project Manager of the Gala, President Alassane Ouattara, First Lady of Niger, Vice President Daniel Kablan Duncan, the President of the National Assembly, Soro Kigbafori Guillaume, Prime Minister Amadou Gon Coulibaly and other members of the Ivorian government as well as Laurence Jenkell.

For this 7th gala dinner, the Children of Africa Foundation's goal was to raise funds for the construction of a School Group in Abobo, which will include twelve primary classes and three kindergarten classes, as well as a library and a school canteen.

Thus, the Children of Africa Foundation was able to collect for its new humanitarian project 240 million CFA Francs raised through the auction hosted by Master Julien Brunie from Christie's and Master Jean Noël Sampah.

Among the artworks on offer was a 2m Candy painted in the colors of Africa, a polymirror aluminum sculpture created by Laurence Jenkell, donated by the artist to the Children of Africa Foundation which allowed the Foundation to collect the sum of 100 million CFA Francs (€150.000).
