LEAD Nigeria simultaneously hosts the Show love Valentine’s Day party in Nigeria on Valentine’s Day as well, where kids from motherless memorial homes, orphanages and juvenile centers come together to enjoy a day of fun with food, music and performances by local artists and celebrities. Items and funds donated to the LEAD Nigeria friendship center by the public are provided to the kids during the party either through raffles or open clothing and book selection drives.
