Children are the leaders of tomorrow. And for our tomorrow to have leaders that would groom the next coming generations, who are sound in mind and excellent in characters, the Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya Nigeria has packed series of educative programmes to aid the growth of the future leaders, at the same time creating an atmosphere where wisdom is golden, at the on-going National Convention and IVC in Oyo.
During the classes today, the age-group 7-9 were enlightened on the concept of God in Islam, the life of Muhammad (saw), Oral care and Dental Hygiene, among others.
The age-group 10-12 did almost like the former and were also equipped on time management skills and how to inculcate confidence as a great tool in educational and social development.
The age-group 13-15 were taught the 10 conditions of biat, and how to be vast in gaining the positive impact of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the decadent 21st century.
Away from classroom gist, the sporting competition resumed back with grand finale of the Athletics competition. Ogun Ilaqa dazzled their opponents with speed that could be liked to the one seen in the Olympics as they won gold medals in the 100m and 200m races. Ogun Ilaqa is also in pole position to win the relay race finals which comes up later tomorrow.
The football, Taekwondo competitions continue as Lagos, Oyo, Kwara, Osun, Rivers, Ogun, Abuja progress to the next rounds of the competitions.
And in the latter part of the evening, representatives from all participating States educationally competed in Quiz and Speech contest across age groups based on these topics:
- Safeguarding the child’s rights: Islam as a yardstick
- Making the world safer for children to live
- Children: Building a connection with Allah
As morally expected of the Atfal-handlers, they continue to provide needed sanitary support to the kids, to care for their clothing and hostel clean ups.
Watch out for tomorrow’s update.
