Like in the previous years, the Africa Federation Secretariat once again invited children between the ages of 6 and 12 years from our Jamaats in Africa to design Eid Cards for the Africa Federation.
We are pleased to inform that one hundred and eighty six (186) entries were received; they are from Arusha, Bukoba, Dar-es-Salaam, Lubumbashi, Madagascar, Mombasa, Moshi, Mwanza, Nairobi and Re-Union Jamaats.
The efforts and enthusiasm shown by these children are indeed overwhelming, choosing the top three entries was not an easy task.
We are pleased to see the creativeness and the artistic talents of these young children of our community.
Following are the designers of the selected Eid Cards:
- Aleesha (Aaliya) Shahina Merali (8 years) of Nairobi – The card designed by her was selected for the Africa Federation for Eid-ul Fitr 1435 for postal Eid Card.
- Rehmat Z. Rashid (12 years) of Dar-es-Salaam – The card designed by her was selected for display on the Africa Federation Website for Eid-ul Fitr 1435.
- Rayane Premjee (10 years) of Re-Union – The card designed by him was selected for Africa Federation for Eid-ul Fitr 1435 for the Email Eid Card.
We congratulate and commend all the children for participating in this annual event, and also wish to thank their parents for encouraging their children.
On behalf of the Chairman and the Office Bearers of the Africa Federation, I wish to convey our best wishes for a very happy and joyous Eid-ul Fitr to all the participants and their parents.
