Fembio Biz 2nd Edition
7th Annual Children’s Day Fair
Every year, Livro Aberto hosts this ever popular family fair to celebrate International Children’s Day and to raise funds to support children’s literacy programs in Maputo and local communities. This year they will also be celebrating World Environment Day, which lands on June 5. To do this they will be raising funds to print copies of Contos Ambientais para Crianças, a book with stories aimed at raising awareness about the environment for children. They will distribute this book for free during the fair.
Launched in June 2012, the fair is now in its seventh year, and has become well known in Maputo as the annual gathering for local and international families alike, celebrating Maputo’s children from all walks of life. In 2017, the fair was attended by at least 500 people from in and around the city, who came to enjoy the many attractions, from creative and educational kids’ activities such as poetry, arts and crafts, face painting and book-making, to story-telling, capoeira, dance, drumming and also sports, games and competitions. Parents were able to enjoy lunch and coffee at Café Acacia, visit designer stalls selling books, designer jewelry, bags and more.
