How’s this for a wonderful idea for keeping children (and their parents) occupied and productive during these long days of self-isolation and social/safe distancing.
The Genesis Programme team, a busy bunch of fantastic people who deliver programmes such as the Area Based Childhood (ABC) Programme and The Changing Lives Initiative, have come up with the idea of holding a video competition using WhatsApp.
They do wonderful work running programmes that provide assistance to school children and their parents.
They’re challenging everyone to show their talent by running a Genesis Got Talent competition via WhatsApp! #genesisgottalent
