Networking Event

Through the invitation of Vijana Amani Pamoja, VAP, a total of 4 under 14 teams gathered together for a one day, friendly, soccer match as an opportunity for networking and learning from each other. The four teams were: Sadili oval, Moving the Goal Post, Christic and Mrembo .The most significant factor in these teams was that they all use football for social change despite limited sports opportunity for girls. Before the kick off, both teams demonstrated how they do use the game of football for social change.”I am so much excited to travel all the way from coast to Nairobi about 2500KM to Nairobi to come and play friendly matches as well as learning and networking from the like-minded teams. This truly shows how huge and of great impact the game of football can change our lives.” Said 13-year-old, Mwanaidi Asha, from Moving the Goal Post. The other teams: Sadili Oval had to travel 42km, Christi, 100km and Mrembo being the host. It was a great opportunity for all teams as they played and interacted with one another all in the name of networking and learning from each other.”We feel so much honored to have hosted this opportunity where we have learned a lot from our colleagues from various parts of this country. We look forward to learning more from other groups, as well, who use football for social change." Said 13 year old,Caroline Mwende from Mrembo.
