Sharing with Kids and Elderly people

November 6, 2016

Learning can be a challenge for small kids, especially at first. But sharing is a skill they need for play and acquaintance throughout childhood. Most children need practice and support to develop this skill. In this regard, the ACF vibrant crew came with the initiative to help children to learn sharing and bonding by giving them opportunities to practise among their friends.

Our first activity was held at Creativity Centre, Mahebourg with kids from Little Champs pre-primary school. This event coincided with Diwali festival and we clenched this opportunity to work on this theme. Our team helped the kids to make cards, different varieties of lamp decoration and Diwali box.

At the end, there was distribution of the decorative lamps and traditional sweets to promote social and cultural values.


Our second event was a lunch at Mere Augustine shelter at Rose belle on the 2nd November. Upon our arrival in morning, to break the ice, we started with a traditional game where our team had also the opportunity to interact with our elderly get to know a bit on them.

This was followed by an interactive session by JCI Curepipe member Divya Poorun who is also a Nutritionist by profession. Our seniors had the opportunity to learn more on healthy eating.

Through the event, our aim was to fill the gap between generations where our members got the opportunity to connect, bond and learn more from our senior persons. We had the chance to learn more on our seniors’ experiences in life.


At noon an enjoyable menu was served, prepared by fellow JCI Curepipe team members. We happily concluded the event with a sega dance and distributing of beautiful cards prepared by our team and we could see the sparkle and happiness in their eyes.

I would like to thank the team for their involvement and excellent contribution for both events.

We promise to come with more impactful activities to create positive changes in our society.
