1.     Introduction

Every year, Children’s day is celebrated in Maldives on the 10th of May. Schools in all islands, as well as various government authorities and NGOs celebrate this day by holding games, activities and fairs.

2.     Summary

This year, to celebrate Children’s Day in Maldives, Department of Gender and Family Protection Services (DGFPS) organized a family day in Sultan Park. In this fair, a total of 17 organizations participated; 9 NGOs and 8 Government institutes.

During the fair, a talent show was held, open to all children. Also, three weeks prior to the event, a drawing /painting competition was announced, and prizes were awarded to the best three out of each age group.

We undertook a stall for educational and traditional games. Drawing and coloring game was included for kids of all ages. In addition to this, our stall had a separate section where children could sit down and listen to a story highlighted on the importance of oral hygiene.

I.            Games and activities

Our stall had traditional games like “ovvalhu gon’di”, “fas oh”, “dhalhu vatta” (target game) and “koraa” (hopscotch). These games were educational as they help children learn how to count, and improves their motor skills as well.

Drawing and coloring game was included for kids of all ages.

In addition to this, our stall had a separate section where children could sit down and listen to a story highlighted on the importance of oral hygiene. This was done with demonstrations of how to brush teeth, with model teeth and a brush. The kids were given the model to try for themselves.

Youth Volunteers of SHE helped in the preparation for the event as well as throughout the event, actively taking part in the games and helping to decorate the stall.
