Football addressing HIV/AIDs

We want to thank you for your continued support to this project. Over the last three months, we have had two major activities taking place. We appreciate your contribution.

Wilkister and Ruth participated in a training workshop held at Society Empowerment Program in  Oyugis. The Training  was meant to add value to the skills in order  teach and train youths and children using different skills basing on our target without practicing physical abuse, neglect, emotional abuse etc.

‘Generally the workshop was good and educating. We Learnt about HIV infection in various stages, Roles of a coach in HIV prevention and also roles and responsibilities of people living with HIV/Aids. We also learned how to create awareness about HIV/Aids using life skills. We learned Roles and Responsibilities of a coach, Needs of youth i.e. social needs, protective needs, personal needs, and sporting needs. Protecting children against abuse for example sexual Abuse, physical abuse like over exercising, neglect i.e. neglecting children needs, emotional abuse and bullying. We also learned how to build a training lesson in football’ Wilkister and Ruth.

In the month of March and April, TYSA collaborated with the Ministry of Education Trans-nzoia East to offer support in organizing the Primary school football tournaments. TYSA through its Football Program offered technical coaching to the teachers and the pupils. The girls and boys team were given football skills at the TYSA football grounds before they proceeded to the County games. At the county level, again TYSA offered extra coaching to the county football team both boys and girls. For the first time in many years, Trans-nzoia County emerged top in the boys’ football in the Rift valley province beaten over other 13 counties and preceded to the Nationals in Mombasa. ‘We are very grateful to TYSA for this great support. It is amazing how TYSA works easily with the pupils. They just enjoy playing’ Mr. Mutoka, Chairperson of the district primary school sports association

Currently, TYSA is preparing under 15 girls and free age team to play in the Kisumu Youth Football Association (KYFA) tournament which kicks of this Thursday 26th to 29th April in Kisumu. 23 girls are camping at the TYSA girls’ resource centre for the last one week, sharpening their skills.  We shall keep you posted on this tournament.  Your continued support has made us proud. These girls would be suffering in the community even some would be abused in the farms.
