KidZania CongreZZ's Caring Project 2017

KidZania CongreZZ 2017 organised its annual Caring Project which brought the spirit of unity alive in true Malaysian style by hosting a Sports Day event for the children of Lighthouse Children Welfare Home (Lighthouse). Heldat Sports Planet Kota Damansara, both KidZania CongreZZ members and the children teamed up to participate in a variety of sports, games and activities. 
“The KidZania SportZ 2017 programme was very popular among kids at KidZania Kuala Lumpur, and we realized that there are many more kids who wouldn’t have been able to enjoy that, especially the underprivileged, so we decided to bring the programme to them instead,” said eight-year-old CongreZZ kid, Joshua Zhakaria. 
“Through the Caring Project, KidZania CongreZZ members are given the responsibility to research, plan and organise a charitable initiative, which teaches them about time and project management. In addition, it instils the importance of helping others and contributing their skills and time to those less fortunate than they are,” said Shahrul Nizar Ahmad, Mayor of KidZania Kuala Lumpur. 
The CongreZZ members and children from Lighthouse enjoyed a fun-filled day of Zumba, CrossFit, futsal and dodgeball sessions. Additional activities such as mini golf, archery, basketball and mini table tennis were also popular and the day came to a close with an upbeat and energetic send-off in the form of special performances by the CongreZZ members and KidZania Kuala Lumpur Artistic Team. 

KidZania CongreZZ is a group of 20 children, from 7 to 12 years old, elected annually to govern KidZania Kuala Lumpur and providing input in decision-making processes, gathering every quarter to discuss topics that will benefit kids such as media, entertainment, education and literature, besides planning for events and initiatives such as the annual Caring Project for disadvantaged communities.
