All set for kids’ costume festival
LITTLE Feet Foundation will host the third edition of its costume festival at Maseru Mall on 25 September 2016.
The festival will start with a fun-walk that will follow two different routes of varying distances. Other activities will include games and competitions for participants while an array of entertainers will spice up the event.
Little Feet Foundation is a non-profit organisation aimed at providing psychological assistance to vulnerable children around the country. So far it has assisted nine children’s homes in Maseru and Mafeteng. It has other projects such as the Lesotho Baby of the Year competition, Little Feet Colouring Book, Little Feet Food Trucks and Little Shop which sells handmade Seshoeshe shoes and toys among other things.
Little Feet Foundation administrator, Tlhohonolofatso Tšehla told XpressPeople on Friday the festival was meant to raise funds while providing a “different kind of fun”.
“The festival brings a different kind of fun that can cater for different people irrespective of their age. It is a colour and costume party and this is the type of entertainment we are trying to promote among our fellow countrymen.
“Since we also have companies on board, the exercises and games have been designed in a manner which will foster better relations among co-workers,” she said.
The line-up of entertainers includes local acts such as Puseletso Seema, Juvenile, Converse Heroes, Dynamites (Dytz), Basali Crew and traditional dancers.
Tšehla added they were raising funds in order to achieve their goal of having a children’s centre.
“Our mission is to promote the normal development of our children through provision of free psychological services, training of caregivers in the orphanages and communities, as well as educating the public about the children’s psychological related problems.
“We identify and use the services of clinical psychologists, psychotherapists and psychiatrists to offer comprehensive psychological support to children.
“We are currently serving two districts but our goal is to have a children’s rehabilitation centre which will provide social and psychological services with recreational and multipurpose facilities, on-site special education programs and physical education, occupational and speech-language therapies among others,” she said.
