The end of year frenzy is upon us, which means that preparations in most organizations are already in high gear. The Christmas trees are going up, lights have been set up, ornaments have been hung and budgets have been made with everyone in the company eager for an end of year celebration. After 365 days of hard work, it’s always nice to reward your team with a treat before everyone heads off to be with their families and friends for Christmas. Here are top 5
ideas of what you can do.

1. End of year party

This one is a classic plan for most organizations. The end of year Christmas party involves food, drinks, music and dancing and allows employees to interact freely and shake off the year’s stress. It also allows the administration to find out in a casual way how the year has been and what they can do to improve in the year to come. Please be warned about the one office drunk who never puts his glass down and the overly flirtatious individual who uses this as a chance to “mix and mingle”.

2. Work retreat

This is another idea that has become very popular in the last few years. Despite being expensive, if planned well a corporate retreat could be the perfect way to wind down the year. There are so many beautiful locations in Uganda and even Kampala itself where you can head to as an organization and get time away from the office to bond and destress from the year’s pressures.

3. Secret Santa

Secret santa is a new tradition that has been added to the list of things to do for end of year. Basically, it is a way to have everyone in the office reward one another. With secret santa, every employee picks a name that they have to buy a gift for without telling them.

4. Dinner Gala

This is another classic. A simple dinner always works to get everyone in the company together and to make it more special a band or comedian or musician could be hired. It may be less costly than a retreat and is much easier to organize once you have the venue sorted out.

5. Talent show

This a creative and fun way to close off the year. Being in work mode from January to December with no play is bound to get exhausting, so allowing people to show off their talents is a nice way too show off different ides of people within the work space. The talent show could have play showcases, fashion show and singing/karaoke competitions to mention but a few.

Meanwhile, Jumia Travel is currently working around the clock to make it less stressful to figure out what companies should do to close off the year. So if you need a venue for a Christmas party or dinner do not hesitate. It also has some great corporate packages which make it more affordable to accommodate a team of 5 or more.

Youthful humanitarians under their umbrella association dubbed Draw A Smile Uganda will on Sunday, July 22nd 2018 contribute to the education of over 218 deaf pupils at the Ntinda school of the deaf through games.

The games which have been called #5On5 will include 5 aside football, Kwepena, Board games, Video games, Matatu among others will go down at the pitch side inside the Ntinda School of the deaf this Sunday starting at mid day to 6pm. Winners will be awarded specifically.

Draw A Smile Uganda is a not for profit non government organisation that was founded by a former TV personality, Sasha Ferguson to donate, inspire and educate young children as well as empowering youth and fighting for rights of single mothers.

They are now fundraising for scholastic materials of over 218 deaf children at the Ntinda School of the Deaf which offers primary education with pre vocational skills in Carpentry, Tailoring, Home Sciences and Agricultural practice.

According to Canary Mugume who is a member of the group and journalist at Next Media owned NBS TV, The school has offered these children an environment to learn but they lack scholastic materials and many of them continue to drop out.

” Therefore, we thought that 10, 000 UGX from each of us can create a change. We are the change we want to see and this is why we named the campaign #10kToStudy. Make your donation today to give the deaf children an access to education, communication in sign language, access to work and better living conditions.” – Canary told bigeye.ug

Jonah Kirabo, a social media administrator and volunteer at the organisation also says that the deaf are always segregated in their communities and many of these are denied access to education and this is why Draw A Smile Uganda came up to lend a hand.

They call upon everyone to attend the event on Sunday 22nd, July 2018. Entrance will be 10,000UGX while anyone can register a team of 5 people minimum to compete for medals, trophy and a cash prize in the 5 aside football and Kwepena.

For more information, contact Derrick Kabuye, the organisations secretary via 0756624226 OR 0778197012.

BigEye.ug, Cheza and The Lenz foundation are proud partners in this charity fundraiser.
