KidZania Kuwait, the exciting kid-sized metropolis, recently organized a day of fun and entertainment for the children of Autism Partnership Kuwait (APK). The first-time event introduced children to a different entertainment environment, presenting them with an opportunity to realize their inherent potentials by exploring new things.
The eventful day was well received by the children where they enjoyed activities such as face painting, and arts and crafts guaranteeing endless entertainment, coiled with an educational element in each activity. The children were entertained with astounding performances by KidZania’s six RightZkeepers: Urbano, Vita, Chika, Beebop, Bekha and Bache who promote the children’s essential rights to know, to care, to share, to create, to be and to play. Children also enjoyed memorable photo opportunities with the RightZkeepers.
Eng. Ghosson Al Khaled, Co-founder and Director of Autism Partnership Kuwait said: “Every child deserves to thrive, and specifically, we believe that children with autism can achieve the greatest degree of independence and highest quality of life possible if they get the right treatment at an early age. We thank KidZania, for hosting this fun day that not only raise awareness within the society but also helps our children integrate with their peers in the community in a fun educational environment.”
Fernando Medroa, Vice President of Leisure & Entertainment at Alshaya Group said: “We at KidZania are very happy to create a positive difference in our local community and support social welfare by welcoming APK kids for a fun day. This initiative falls under our corporate social responsibility framework giving importance to valuable engagement and supporting community causes. Children with autism are a very valuable part of our community. Inclusion is not an easy or quick process, but we are happy that at KidZania they thrived and explored new horizons and had a memorable day.”
