VENUE: GISIMBA MEMORIAL CENTER
NGIRINSHUTI_FRIENDAY is a one day event for vulnerable and non-vulnerable kids aimed at giving a child an opportunity to show off his abilities and talents. The main objective is to create an environment that helps a child to feel a sense of belonging to interact with others but most importantly to make friendship. The first Ngirinshuti_Frienday event was held in 2016 where 150 children and adults gathered for a fun day. The 2017 Ngirinshuti_Frienday event gathered more than 300 children that not only played but also showed off their skills and this year 2018, more than 500 people have attended the summer event kids.
The 05th Of August children coming from different organizations were happy, full and eager to create comradeship through different kinds of games and activities and the aim of those games was to put up the life skills, respect time and life changing lessons to the kids. Volunteers were ready to serve a hot cup of tea and a sandwich to all kids. After their breakfast at 10 am children made a circle with all volunteers to listen how the day was going to be conducted. While children were being taken into their group age, they were excited to see themselves making friendship through love and passion. At 2pm we were all gathered for lunch.
After having a hot meal, children were enthusiastically prepared to perform what they have learned with their caregivers. Participants enjoyed the artist piece from Children and performance of guest artists. At 5pm children with all participants shared a big cake to celebrate the third anniversary of Ngirinshuti-Frienday event and after they gave a goodbye hug of friendship to one another after a picture that captured a good memory.
