The Lions Club of Mombasa Bahari every year hosts a Poetry Recital Competition for young children around primary schools in Mombasa.
The club education convener sends out invitations weeks before the competition to schools requesting them to participate and send the club names of the children who will be taking part.
Every year the Club gets praised by the teachers and parents for holding this event which allows young children to participate and improve their public speaking skills. We have seen an increase in new schools who wish to take part every year after hearing the good and exciting news about this competition in the local paper and word of mouth.
Below are the poetry recital completions we have held in the past:
