It’s not often kids enjoy after school clubs. Most of them want to go home and play football with their friends or watch TV. But for the 167 kids on the programme in the Tonkolili district, Sierra Leone, being members of Rainbow Family clubs have put a big smile on their faces.
Four clubs have been set up for them to improve their religious and social skills from the Arabic Club which teaches kids Qur’anic recitation at a radio station, to the Dawah Club which delivers dawah teachings on the radio, encouraging kids to become good moral citizens.
Kids are also given the opportunity to give back to their community by being involved in the Charity Club. This club allows kids to take an active part in charitable work such as cleaning the mosques and giving gifts and food to the poor. The L & D.S. debating club also gives kids the chance to develop their public speaking skills and encourages them to take part in reading. All in all, not only do the kids enjoy going to school but also feel elated to members of an after school club.
