Simba-Safe Kenya was excited to be part of the Kibera Kids Comp Camp alongside fellow bloggers the Magunga and LindaAfya under the Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE). 140 children turned up against the expected 100 at YMCA Kibera Kenya Primary School. The children were engaging and eager to learn the basics of blogging and how they can share their stories with the world while also considering a future career in blogging.
The morning session started off with creative writing where the children wrote a paragraph story of what they enjoyed most during the just ended term 1 of this year. Thereafter they created a word document of their handwritten paragraph story. This was concluded by learning a step by step guide on how to set up a free blog and publish their stories with some tips on online safety. Here is a link to one blog that was published and is livehttps://fourqueensandfivekings.wordpress.com/2016/04/08/what-i-enjoyed-the-most-this-term/
