From April 14th to April 16th, 2021, in Peace Village Center was organized a holiday camp for children who are supported by SINAPISI RWANDA, NGO; 50 children participated.

The topics of this holiday camp were: “How children can protect themselves against COVID19”, “Life during lockdown”, “HIV/AIDS prevention and related diseases”, and “How to avoid unwanted pregnancies”.

Participants gave different measures that can help them to not get contaminated by Covid19 such as washing their hands on regular basis using clean water and soap or using hand sanitizer, wearing a face mask covering both the mouth and the nose, keeping social distancing while in public, avoiding shaking hands in their greetings or kisses etc.

Regarding their life during lockdown, they said that it was not easy to but they thanked SINAPISI RWANDA which, in collaboration with its partners, intervened by providing to families who received these children some money via MTN Mobile Money so as to purchase food stuffs. They equally said that they observed all the measures set by the government to contain this pandemic. As a result, no child supported by SINAPISI RWANDA has been arrested by the police for breaking the measures.

Concerning HIV/AIDS and unwanted pregnancies, participants showed that they had knowledge about this as it is even taught at school.
