Children’s Gujarati Speech Competition

One of the main events at this year’s KHF, is the Children’s Gujarati Speech Competition, where the children from our communities will compete in delivering speeches on a selected theme in the Gujarati language!

 

To apply, please click here, and send us your video entry at secretariat@coej.org using the following guidelines:

 

1. What is our heritage as Khojas today and what does it mean to you? This can be your favourite traditional food, traditional clothes, our language, our mosques, or anything that shows your personal history.
2. What do you think are the goals of the Khoja Heritage Project (maintain our culture, spread our culture, or just talk about it sometimes at events?)

 

You can be as creative as you want with your speech as long as it is in Gujarati!

 

Remember the speech doesn’t have to be long, but just for about 2-3 minutes!
