It’s the holiday season.
I don’t know why I’m emphasizing so much on it, maybe it’s because I’m on holidays too 😀
Oh well, I remember those days when I’d come home and want to attend a summer school program other than extra lessons, like for earth sake I just finished 3 months of endless learning, don’t need me some extra but my mum would say “You know it’s just to prepare you for the next academic year”. Whew! I know right?!
Fast-forward to this jet age where everything and everyone is on the go. Awesome ideas are being created to improve the standard of living, innovations are on-going to change the world, etc. Gone are the days when it’s just private tutoring or computer lessons that children or adults on holidays can engage themselves in, now we see other summer school programs especially skill acquisition platforms. Notwithstanding the usefulness of the tutoring and IT classes, helping a child discover his talent on time is a necessity in preparing him for the future.
This is why I’ve researched and seen that there are lots of programs going on to engage kids this holiday season. I decided to talk about some of them.

Belkayphine accessories is a bead company owned by the beautiful Nkechi Njoku, a college mate. She has so inspired me over the years with her love for beads. She’s committed and dedicated in seeing others improve themselves. She’s putting up a skill acquisition program for not just the kids but adults too. Here one can learn how to be creative with beads. The program will admit kids from ages 10-17. This program according to Nk will engage the children and adults in a positive way and bring out the creativity in them.

There’s something to do this holiday season, so just don’t sit at home, eat and sleep all day. Engage yourself wisely. Take an exercise routine, do a professional course, go for retreats and camping, visit mission fields, write a book, just do something gainful. For those traveling I have goodies for you, yup, I’d be writing some vacation tips soon, stay glued….
