15-day training classes were organised by Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Guinea-Bissau for atfal and nasirat. Taking advantage of the holidays in educational institutions, the classes took place in 59 different places across Guinea-Bissau. A total of 16,644 atfal and nasirat participated in these classes.
Special attention was given to reading and learning the Holy Quran, Qaida Yassarnal Quran, and Tartil-ul-Quran during the morning classes. After the Maghrib prayer, children were taught about the blessed lives of the Holy Prophet Muhammadsa and the Promised Messiahas through easy-to-understand stories. Introductions to Khulafa-e-Rashideen and Khulafa of the Promised Messiahas were also presented. Besides the five daily prayers, regular Tahajjud prayer and dars of the Holy Quran and Hadith were organised during the training classes.
Sports activities were held every day after Asr prayer to promote physical health.
At the end of the 15-day classes, prizes were distributed among all the children to motivate them.
