Due to widespread poverty and poor living conditions, the carefree and joyous aspects of childhood are often overshadowed in developing countries. This project will allow children to truely experience what is it to be youthful. Play is not only an important element in child development, but it also encourages imagination, and inspires children to see beyond the perceived boundaries of their situation.
Join for Joy will organize summer camps for children in Lake Naivasha, Kenya, which entails play and sporting activities; music and dance; role-playing and creative exercises. The development of sports and activity guides, complete with the necessary materials for games and sports, will further stimulate the intellect and imagination of these young children. Through such activities, the children have a chance to express themselves in a safe and fun environment. Play is fundamentally important to child development, and Join for Joy plans to reach up to 20.000 children with this project.
Bring joy and inspiration into the lives of underprivileged children in Kenya through sports and play at Join for Joy summercamps. The true essence of childhood is celebrated, and children have a unique opportunity to express themselves and experience the joyful energy that comes from playing.
