We all love a good weekend adventure, and the kids at Malayaka House are no different! After a long week at school, the kids, aunties and volunteers love Saturday Safari. Trips to the beach, Children’s Park and the local market are all special trips everyone looks forward to.
Malayaka House is located very near to Lake Victoria. Ensuring that all of the children know how to swim is a priority, and one that is waves of fun! Volunteers love taking the kids to the pool for a swim, and seeing the daredevils who are keen to jump into the deep end of the pool!
Beach days give the kids the space to run around, get their feet wet and spend time with friends from town. It is also a great change of pace for the Aunties who work at Malayaka House, as they can play football, build sandcastles or relax in the shade with the kids.
Heading down to the market in Entebbe Town is a delicious treat. Samosas and freshly squeezed juice are favourites, especially the ones made by some of the Malayaka House teenagers who participate in a culinary training program at a local restaurant located in the central market.
Who doesn’t love a little monkey business? Jungle gyms and monkey bars are all the rage at Children’s Park in town. With space to run and plenty of equipment for everyone, Saturday Safari here is tops! It is also a great spot to meet up for play dates with other kids from school. So excited for this weeks’ Safari!
