Mathare North Festive Season Soccer Tournament U12

#MNFSST Ongoing, Mathare North Festive Season Soccer Tournament U12. 16 teams, 16 coaches, More than 300+ players are engaged on a daily basis. Our main theme this year is, Creating Safe Space Through Soccer

Soccer4Change 
Main goal ; using soccer to drive forward social change.

  1.  Networking with other youth-led groups to foster peace and other social activities using soccer. 
  2. Use soccer as an agent for change whereby facilitating the teams in local and regional tournaments.
  3. Using soccer as a tool to drive positive social transformation. 
  4. Learning other life-skills through soccer for example leadership and self esteem.

My vision is to see each kid in the slum of Mathare own a quality ball and a pair of soccer shoe.

How many children can play one ball?

#thePowerOfaBall How long can one quality ball last in one of the grassroots pitch? Our goal Wilsen Initiative (Wi) is to connect every kid who love soccer with the required resources like football, uniforms, soccer shoes etc. In case you want to make any contributions toward achieving this goal get in touch with me.
