Thousands of children last Sunday thronged Little Hands Go Green’s Green Festival that took place at Kololo Independence Grounds.

As its norm, Riham Group of Companies was in the place to make the event cheerful for the green army.

Each child was given free fun time goodies courtesy of Riham and on top of that, the company also rewarded children who collected the most empty bottles at the event.

Riham’s Ms. Rachel Luwedde expressed gratitude to Little Hands Go Green for organizing a great initiative that brings kids from all corners of Uganda together with an aim of conserving the environment.

She said as Riham, they will continue to work with the movement to protect the environment.

Mr. Joseph Masembe, the founder and CEO of Little Hands Go Green revealed that Riham has been their right hand partner in ensuring that their goals are achieved.

He added that if the people truly considered every green tree as important, the world would be a great place to live in.

“For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver,” said Masembe.

Meanwhile, the little ones were entertained by various artistes like Fik Fameica, Levixone, Djs Slick Stuart and Roja among others.

They also enjoyed a number of games like skating, bouncing castles as well as camel riding.

The biannual event aims at encouraging children embrace the culture of conserving the environment through planting trees.
