If you’re looking to learn a new skill, shake up your family quiz night or find some calm while you stay home, look no further than Keepbusy.ae.
While restrictions may be lifting, with people now being able to move around without the need for permits, Keepbusy.ae provides UAE residents who would rather stay home with an impressive range of free online activities. Since its launch in March, Keepbusy.ae has partnered with education experts, business gurus and health and wellness coaches, among others, to provide a free platform for those looking to add some fresh new activities to their daily stay-at-home routines.
Keepbusy.ae was created by husband and wife duo, Brad Standish and Alice Forde. Standish said, “We wanted to create a platform that would offer people a break from the monotony of staying home all day every day. We started off small, but we now have 76 options on offer, completely free. It’s been great to work with companies who are happy to share their expertise and know-how with residents who are looking to do something a little bit different.”
The workshops and activities featured on the platform encourage activity-seekers to engage in educational and social activities from the comfort and safety of their own homes. “To date, our most popular activities, attracting the highest number of users, include a family-friendly quiz, interactive skills building sessions for children, calligraphy worksheets, bonkers bingo and photography workshops. It’s also been incredible to see new users logging in from other parts of the world – we’re attracting an audience not currently located in the UAE,” Standish said.
Forde added, “We’re not only hoping to provide people with fun activities to do while they stay home. We also want to provide businesses with a free platform to advertise their services and activities at a time when they need it the most. We hope people will really enjoy the workshops they are taking and will want to continue doing business with providers even when we’re all getting back to normal.”
Businesses who want to offer free activities can simply sign up at Keepbusy.ae. All applications are reviewed, and, upon approval, activities will be listed on the site by category. Users searching for activities do not need to sign up for an account. They can visit Keepbusy.ae and instantly start browsing activities and contact the provider directly.
