In light of Qatar’s 6th National Sports Day (NSD), KidzMondo Doha offered children the opportunity to cultivate their sporting values and skills through the variously available role playing activities, along with some games and competitions that spread the theme of health and sports, at the recently opened edutainment city.
Presenting a variety of activities for the 2017 National Sports Day, the edutainment city hosted football games, rock climbing sessions, Zumba sessions and a 5 lap race – to name a few of the frequented engaging activities – along with the ongoing role playing establishments available at KidzMondo Doha. While children could continue to ‘live the role’ on National Sports Day, the designated exercises of the day were designed to energize the youngsters mind and body for the day, emulating sports movements and the benefits leading a healthy and active lifestyle.
Marking their first year partaking in the national event, KidzMondo Doha made note of distributing Sports Stations across the edutainment city. Their presence was found near the Fire Station, Race Track, Soccer Court, Police Station, Supermarket and Hospital, to ensure that while the eager Kidizens waited in line for their next activity, the ‘edutainers’ could detail to the children the type of sports played around the world, and provide them with anecdotes of that sports’ origin, history and how that sport exists locally and regionally as part of Qatar’s sport culture.
Mr. Nabil Barakat, the General Manager of KidzMondo Doha, noted: “At KidzMondo Doha, we are mindful of the importance of equipping children with the proper and necessary facts for health and nutrition, and we embraced that notion on Qatar’s 6th National Sports Day. It is part of our commitment to promote active life and our pledge to educate kids to grow up as champions in their lives and in sports, as our Kidizens come here to find their own ways and become autonomous, which is a stepping stone to championing their paths.”
He continued: “Being located at Mall of Qatar has allowed us to see their tremendous effort exerted for this day, which led us to join forces and sponsor a few of the activities taking place in the mall. To that regard, dedicating activities at KidzMondo for NSD allowed us to provide a host of benefits to kids beyond their physical health, including communication and social skills through team-building, goal-setting and more. This is in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030 and focus on human development, as sporting skills and values help children build a foundation that will enable them to succeed in life, which KidzMondo Doha is delighted to be part of.”
The NSD celebration witnessed the active participation of KidzMondo Doha’s energetic workforce – the devoted edutainers – who helped create a memorable experience for the Kidizens, in the true spirit of National Sports Day’s call for leading an active life. KidzMondo Doha’s participation in the celebration came as part of their effort to create a positive and cognitive impact on the community, while endorsing their support of sports activities that further enrich child and family development, in line with Qatar National Vision 2030 and its focus on human development as the main pillar of the country’s progress and prosperity.
