A student,player cum coach- Mss Atieno Inspires her school team

Mss Atieno Inspires her school to second position

What a dramatic encounter it was! Two of our girls’ secondary schools which we support all made it the last four in the Trans-nzoia east district football competition held two weeks ago.

It was an exciting competition as it was all against students whom we support through TYSA. Wiyeta Girls eventually took the top position followed by Geta Girls. Veronica was the cornerstone of Wiyeta and Mss Atieno spearheaded all the attacks for Geta girls.

TYSA is proud to produce such excellent and prowess girls’ footballers through its Education and Football project. The school principals were upbeat. ‘ I am so happy that in our first attempt, our girls school football team reached the finals in our district . We beat 10 other girls team. I am overwhelmed. Iam greatful to Mss Atieno for unique talent in football.She has inspired the whole Team’ Principal, Geta secondary school.

It was all jubilations as Wiyeta and Geta Secondary schools proceeded to participate in the Regional tournament. The girls all thanked TYSA for supporting them to access education and play football. ‘I just joined school this year at Geta secondary school after being home for two years. Am so grateful to TYSA who pays my school fees and took me to Nairobi to train as a coach.I am student,a player cum coach’ Mss Atieno

It is our desire to continuing offering young people opportunity to access education and promote their football talent. This would not have been possible if you did not join us and donated. We lookfoward to your continued support.
