Using the power of soccer to fight HIV/AIDS

by Vijana Amani Pamoja (VAP)

For the fifth time in a row, world football governing body FIFA through its Corporate Social Responsibility granted Vijana Amani Pamoja, (VAP) with one year funds to boost its Skillz Kenya HIV/AIDS intervention project that creates awareness of HIV/AIDS through a soccer themed curriculum. The FIFA funding to VAP came via a strategic alliance geared towards the Millennium Development Goals between streetfooballworld; and FIFA.The two have been using football as an instrument for social development for many years in a variety of ways. “We as VAP feel very much honoured and privileged to secure FIFA funds again for the fifth year running. This funding creates more trust and believe from FIFA and other donors whom we appreciate a lot for their continued support. We also believe the power of opinions, suggestions and questions in order to move forward and I take this opportunity to welcome feedback from our extinguished donors.Additionally,the funds will expand our programs and make us reach many children in many schools here in Nairobi now that we have an official authority from the government to reach out all schools around Nairobi “Said Nancy Waweru, Program officer.


The Streetfootballworld Network was set up in 2002 with the common vision to bring about social and human development through the use of football. Increased recognition of common work-that of all Network members and the team at the streetfootballworld in Berlin –has led to tremendous developments over the last years. Streetfootballworld acts as an interface between the streetfootballworld Network members and companies and institutions that are interested in investing in and cooperating with the field of Development through Football. By offering investment opportunities (projects) and developing corporate Citizenship (CC) strategies with these interested institutions, Streetfootballworld aims at establishing a support structure for the streetfootballworld Network that enables it to expand its activities and its goals.

FOOTBALL FOR HOPE The Football for Hope Movement is the key element of the strategic alliance between FIFA and streetfootballworld. It was created to enhance dialogue and collaboration between locally active organizations advancing social development and football associations, committed clubs and players, professional leagues as well as involved commercial partners. The Movement aims to utilize the role of football in the society in order to contribute to the achievement of the UN Millennium Development Goals.”With this funding and many others from various donors,VAP is very optimistic in its vision and mission in achieving its goals.We take this opportunity to thank all the individuals and corporate who have been donating their funds towards our movement and we wish each one of you happy holiday season and a prosperous new year(2012).”Said Enouce Ndeche,Executive Director
