Our History and Values
Noviha Sponsored Walks is on Saturday the 11th of June. This is an annual health and fundraising event for members, family, friends and supporters of Noviha's causes. This year 2016, the members and patrons will walk criss-crossing Ten of the most beautiful bridges in London covering over 15 kilometers. It enables members, friends and family to walk a distance of between 10-15 kilometrea and give many the opportunity to truly enjoy the beautiful scenery of London and an to promote the Noviha social inclusive programme of redusing loneliness and isolation of the elders. The Sponsored Walks have proved to be very popular with the members and the organisers.
The Noviha Hogbetsotso is on the 10th of September, 2016. Noviha Cultural education and awareness takes the form of a bi-annual celebration of Hogbetsotso Cultural Festival. The festival draws audiences from many African nationals living in the UK and the general public. It is also an opportunity to raise funds and to show our historical origins and traditions. Highlights of the festival include the traditional Ewe dances by the Noviha Youth, the attendance of our traditional Paramount Chiefs from Ghana in their palanquins, traditional drumming and dancing.
Noviha recognises the importance education esecially early childhood education. Noviha has collected and donated many children’s books and toys to a number of centres including the Dedzidi Early Childhood Development Centre at Anloga. Education is the root out of poverty and Noviha remains committed in doing its part to promote this agenda. These are projects we hope individual benefactors can take up and use our platform to support.
