Value Based Football Unlocks Children’s Potential
The children had an opportunity to learn the values of football, life skills through various games and plays. Children en-joyed the sessions especially the games and plays we demonstrated to them. We made their physical education enjoyable and interactive.

Children complemented that this games and plays opened their minds making them to concentrate in class and come to school always. This has made those children who don't want to come in school often to love school. Through the project we have discovered many talents from the four primary schools.

Children have shown their talents through the various activities of value based football. Others are good players, leaders and coaches. They have become a source of inspiration to other children in school and even in their homes. For example Daniel Kipruto is a talented footballer who aspires to play in future in the national team. Over 300 children participated in this weekly program in schools

Children Rights Highligted

Over 300 children drawn from four primary schools, namely Sinoko, Sitamani, Chep-koiyo and Saiwa participated in the forum under the guidance of key stakeholders who had expertise on different thematic areas.

The panelists comprised representatives from the police, judiciary, youth office, ministry of medical services and commu-nity resource persons. The existence of this programme is an indication that the chil-dren face enormous challenges in attaining full potential expected of them.

The overall objective of this mission was to equip children with knowledge to know their constitutional rights and instruments rights including the UNHCR. The level of confidence displayed by children during action planning development and presentation was a pointer to the feeling of being ready to undertake the task ahead. One of the key out-comes was creation of suggestion boxes through their focal teachers, mentors and TYSA project staff.
