Christmas Kids Camp At Speke Resort To Keep Your Children Health

The physical growth of children is something that doesn’t pay much attention because, in most times, the toddlers are not recommended to professional physical workout. Sometimes this is achieved through Physical Education at school and through other sports activities in and out of school.

In a case where the child is not physically involved in sports activities at school, the child has other avenues to achieve these goals like at social activities like outdoor outings, parties, and adventure engagements. 

For many parents, there is no better time to bond with their children than during the long third term school holiday. The long holiday which usually starts late November to early February coincides with the long festive season.

The school break and the festive season gives creative parents plenty of option to spend time with their offsprings and rejuvenate their relationships. They are plenty of activities that parents can indulge in their children for not only the family bonding but also the children’s personal growth.

And this festive season, Munyonyo Commonwealth Resort together with Guido’s Kids Club is hosting kids at their annual Christmas Camp starting from 15th December 2019 to 6th January 2020 at the hotel in Munyonyo. The camp comes with different daily activities to stimulate the children’s social life.

Kampala Parents School To Help Kids Run For Safe Water

Many schools in rural areas barely access clean usable water yet the need for such water for both children and teaching staff is instrumental to ensure that these children sustainably study. 

The luck for such clean water in these schools led to pupils and teachers to suffer all sorts of diseases and living in unhealthy conditions.

To avert these conditions in the different parts of the country, Ruparelia Group through Kampala Parents’ School is sponsoring the Kampala Kids Run this year with the theme: Safe Drinking Water in Primary Schools.

The Kampala Kids Run being organized by Startimes, a pay television services provider, is scheduled to take place on 8th December 2019 at the Uganda Museum, starting at 6 am.

Speaking at the launch of the StarTimes Kampala Kids Run 2019 in October, Rajiv Ruparelia, a director of Ruparelia Group said they are honored to sponsor the event and said pupils of Kampala Parents' School were going to actively participate.

"Let's get involved and provide safe drinking water to Primary School Children in villages," Rajiv said. Adding: “We work tirelessly to make sure we provide the best yet many children do not have the privileges we have. It is upon us to provide for them,” 

Rajiv challenged the public not to rest until safe drinking water was no longer a problem. “Children in Kampala schools get clean water but this not the case in rural communities. As a director, I am going to ensure that I sensitize children in Kampala schools on the need to help rural children,” said Ruparelia.

The Public Relations Manager of the Kampala Kids Run Bukenya Muhammed says that like last the money will be used to buy water tanks that will be given to needy schools in different rural areas.

“We are looking for money to buy water tanks that will be given to the needy schools in rural communities. Last year we gave out over 25 tanks to different schools, this time we need to give more,” he revealed.

StarTimes CEO Mr. Franklin Wang said the purpose of the event is to come together to support children in rural schools by providing safe drinking water. "We care about each child’s health. So let us make StarTimes Kampala Kids Run a great success.”

For a child to participate in this cause, all he or she needs to do is buy a kit at only UGX 20,000. All proceeds from the event will go to ensuring that there is safe drinking water for children in rural schools.

Besides the kids’ Run which has the 1.5km and 3km race, there will be bouncing castles, work out with Zumba dancers, kid games by the clowns and more.

Thousands of kids from different schools and their parents are expected to turn up for the one-day event at the Uganda Museum competing in 1.5 and three kilometres for kids below eight and those about nine respectively.
