“To ensure overall health and progress for the community, it is important to understand the growing social, physical, mental and emotional needs of children. Hence, the Aster Kids Club was created to cater to the development of children from the ages of three to thirteen.  The Club focuses on providing valuable information regarding health and wellness, using interactive and competitive events such as the Aster Quiz. We also invite parents, children, and extended families to be part of the club, ensuring children have a positive and supportive environment” said Ms. Alisha Moopen, Executive Director of Aster DM Healthcare and Group CEO of Aster Hospitals and Clinics.

Designed to both challenge and encourage young minds, the Aster Kids Interschool Quiz competitions semi-finals included 60 participants representing 18 schools, from grades seven to nine. Over the course of three rounds of elimination, the children were tested on general knowledge and aptitude. Moreover to encourage teamwork and collaboration, the quiz ensured that each school had two teams with two students in each.

“The children of today never fail to surprise us with their wit and worldly knowledge. They are the generation of tomorrow, the generation that will create solutions and produce innovations for the future. Hence, it is important to constantly provide a challenging, yet collaborative environment that celebrates the leadership and talent of young leaders today. We hope to be able to grow our network of Aster Kids to all children in the region, encouraging the creation of a space in which young minds flourish” commented Alisha Moopen, Executive Director of Aster DM Healthcare and Group CEO of Aster Hospitals and Clinics.
