Saber said, “At the prayer station, children explored different types of prayer, the bible story station featured interactive stories that brought the lessons to life. The craft station allowed children to express their creativity while deepening their understanding of the daily theme and the game station offered engaging games that helped children burn off energy.”

She added that each day concluded with a review of the day’s lessons and an opportunity for children to contribute to the mission project. The programme culminated in a special ceremony on June 29, where each child received a certificate of attendance, celebrating their participation and accomplishments throughout the week.
