VIDES Kenya: More that 1,000 young people at Easter 2012 Fun Day
Monday April 9, Easter Monday, the Easter 2012 Fun Day took place in Kenya. This event for young people is organised by VIDES Kenya.
Over a thousand young people met at the MEC, Mutuini Educational Centre, to celebrate the resurrection of Christ. The day began at 9am with the words of welcome from Sr. Laurenzia, FMA, who is responsible for the formation of the young volunteers and animators of the oratory of Mutuini. In her words, she recalled the words of Don Bosco "play, sing, shout, do anything that makes you happy, but do not sin" emphasising that offering young people joyful activities is a constructive way to celebrate the resurrection.
The young VIDES Kenya volunteers organised everything down to the smallest detail and gave the young participants the opportunity of taking part in a series of entertaining activities such as: horse and camel rides, bouncy castles for the little ones, a portable pool for water games, motor-cycle rides, a raffle with prizes and many stands for small and bigger children.
The day was a real success and, for this, the FMA of Mutuini are grateful to the VIDES volunteers who, besides organising a perfect day, were able to experience the joy of contributing to the formation of the young people according to the teaching of Don Bosco.
