Hiv/aids Control Tournament

Andrew Makokha is my name. i come from an area called Narakholo. i am a football fanatic and i also play very well. i play for a team known as "Maroon Commandoes" which won last year's cup of HIV?AIDS control tournament cap. this tournament was started about three years ago and it mainly seeks the youth. apart from playing soccer, the players and fans are reached to with information information regarding HIV?AIDS control. the tournament is as a result of the initiative of a certain NGO named WSF which saw it necessary to start it and pair HIV/AIDS education to people through playing soccer and having fun. Actually, alot of people have learnt alot from the same.
