Does Kenya (my homeland) has a youth program or academies for empowering, nurturing talented footballers for both boys and girls? We witness great stars turn into crime, drugs etc. because of frustrations, mismanagement, lack of adequate facilities, lack of professionalism etc. Something needs to be done if we need to be recognized as a nation of great footballers like in athletics and rugby...
DO SOMETHING TODAY! Wilsen Initiative seeks to address this issues by empowering young people with the critical skills to make the right choices despite their situations and most importantly encourage the use of talent and skills for prosperity. It's so unfortunate our nation team lost to Lesotho 1-0 (20/07/201) after the World cup exposure!
I hope they will make us proud during the return match. It's high time we have a sports policy that have clear road map of implementation, if are really serious as a Nation that supports and recognizes sports for development on both social and economical pillars.
