May 31, 2023, Umuhuza Organisation awarded certificates of appreciation to 120 volunteers (60 men and 60 women) from 4 sectors in Kirehe district who facilitated the implementation of the year-long project, Championing Play.

Volunteers trained parents on toy making using locally available materials under 17 parenting sessions and conducted home visits twice a week. The project was implemented in partnership with Save the Children and funded by the LEGO foundation.
