Can Aikido become contagious amongst the village kids?

I am helping my teacher to train kids between 6 and 12 in a Turkish village as a community project. This means it is voluntary on our part. Kids don't pay anything. I am looking for ways of making the training more stimulating for the kids as well as attracting more of them.

There is the problem of cheating as well, they seem to want to win so much! They can do anything.

I ideally would like Aikido to be a contagion between kids. Parents are not aware of anything. And to be honest they don't seem to care very much. Children are often in the streets during the summer months messing about whilst parents focus on earning money via tourism.

Any ideas to make all the village kids do Aikido?
