Our team (Mathare North Rangers F.C) was honored to participate in this year’s Sakata ball tournament sponsored by Safaricom. We registered for Kasarani constituency whereby we were grouped with Kasarani D.c for the first knock-out match at Babadogo grounds.
We lost the match 2-0 but it was our first enrollment to a regional tournament which we achieved a lot despite losing the match. Some of the benefits are; all players got a chance to play against a new team, our team comprised of youth from different areas, all players received certificates of participation and our team received a ball.
The great victory for me was to see youth coming together for a common goal, the spirit of fair play and team work from both teams. We thank the organizer (Safaricom) for such a wonderful tournament that natures talents and promotes togetherness amongst youth and communities from diverse backgrounds.
This is one of the best models for CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) projects that touch on people’s life directly. If you have any ideas on how you can assist us nurture and promote youth talents in sport, kindly drop me a few lines at Wilson.masaka [at] gmail.com
