On Saturday, 21st of April, Skillz Kenya participants from different community centers attended a graduation tournament at Jericho Sports Ground.

The tournament provided an opportunity for participants to show their soccer skills and ex-pertise on HIV prevention.

The attendees who had engaged in the life skills program that Skillz Kenya provides spent the day exchanging information they had learned at their various centers, making new friends, and enjoying soccer.

The event hosted a total of 120 participants and the group was divided into eight teams. The teams included: Breakers Foundation 1989, Lolly Soccer Academy, Breakers B F.c, Lolly B F.c, Uhuru tipples F.c, F.A VAP F.c, Eastlands Soccer Academy, and Eastlanders Junior F.c.

The event was successful in meeting the goal of providing a platform for participants to share what they had learnt.All the participants were awarded with certificates of participation in the Skillz Kenya HIV/AIDS awareness program.

      VAP Administrators Discuss Partnership Opportunities with Goal Irish-Kenya

 On the 17th –18th of May, VAP staff, including ,Director,Enouce Ndeche,, program officer Charles and Elizabeth Okinda, attended a 2 day GOAL’s partners work-shop at Olive Gardens.

The meeting covered the possibility of a partnership opportunity for VAP and Goal Irish-Kenya to support Vijana Amani Pamoja in its efforts to empower surrounding communities through football via Skillz Kenya program.

This partnership would allow for an increase in funding for VAP which would enable more work to be done. VAP administrators anticipate a beneficial relationship with Goal Irish Kenya to establish strong, supportive connections which will enable them to reach a larger area and strengthen their capacity.

With this new addition, VAP hopes to create programs for more of the many schools around Nairobi and increase awareness of their program.

“We are very happy to be invited and being part of GOAL’s partners’ workshop. We have learnt a lot from GOAL and most important their reporting systems that would really built VAP’s capacity. I wish to also thank all foundations, corporate and individuals who have been donating towards our course through Global Giving. We are looking forward to a successful partnership with Goal Irish Kenya.” Said Enouce Ndeche,VAP’s Director. For more information please read the attached newsletter.
