Following the impressiveness and success of Kick-out corruption program in different community centres and schools, the demand of having the program in other schools and centres is rising up on a daily basis. After having completed the program in  Maringo school last holiday,Mr.Joseph , the head teacher from Mukuru school who was visiting Maringo primary school when the program was on going, happened to get a first hand opportunity to witness kick-out corruption program at Maringo school. After his witnessing, he enquired from the program implementers if he could have the program at his school as well. Immediately after the completion of the program at Maringo school, focus shifted to his school at Mukuru school where a total of 200 student participants aged 12-15 years old both boys and girls are currently participating in the program. Asked why he was interested in the program, this is what Mr. Joseph said “There is great need of this program in this school and given the fact that we are all nurturing future leaders, I think it’s more important they start to know the dangers of corruption right from the tender ages so that when they grow up and become leaders, they can be leaders of integrity who can spur this nation to a greater height as far as development is concerned.” “I feel so proud to be part of the Kick-Out corruption program because my dream is to become a great leader and I know I can’t achieve this if I don’t learn integrity issues and the dangers of corruption. This is something that teachers don’t teach us, but am glad to be able to receive from VAP organization.” Said  Bariku ,a 14 years old program participant from Mukuru school.

A group of parents, teachers, and community coaches of VAP programs from different communities and schools assembled at VAP offices for a one day meeting geared towards looking appreciating the cooperation, challenges and successes of the program. The meeting spearheaded by VAP senior and master coaches collected diverse views from attendees that would contribute towards building and strengthening programs that would develop a stronger community.Attendees were also taken through all VAP programs with each and every head of VAP department narrating the way they do their programs and the kind of support they would need from the attendees. The meeting concluded with a clear direction and need of working together towards building a stronger community.

As the world’s elite football master class players were keeping the football fields of France busy, another set of  world  ambassadors of football for social impact in their hundreds  including youth teams ,young leaders and professionals came via every means including: flights, buses, trains, canoe and roller skates, heavily loaded with their expertise and flags of their respective countries at the city of Lyon France, the host of festival 16.The congregation that included VAP represented countries with organizations from around the world that subscribe themselves by leveraging the powerful dynamite of football in changing the lives of their respective communities targeting various elements including:health,employability,peace,education,democracy,and governance,etc. The pomp and color event that was officially opened by the France minister of sports was conducted under the auspices of streetfootballworld festival16, football for good in partnership with Euro 2016.The youth participated in various message based football activities and games.VAP youth demonstrated various football based activities that fight corruption out of our communities while other youth representing other countires displayed various football based activities that fight differrent social vices..

After a successful run of VAP’s Skillz program at Muthurwa primary school, the school management requested to have show corruption ‘Red Card’ program in their school. The connection and introduction of show corruption ‘Red Card’ program into Muthurwa primary was also influenced by teacher Felix who used to teach at Ruaka primary school where show corruption ‘Red Card’ program had just been concluded and graduated over 200 students.

Over 300 students from Muthurwa primary school are taking part in the show corruption ‘Red Card’ program. During the first day of the program, participants were given some surveys to fill by the Anti-corruption crusaders. The surveys contain basic questionnaires gauging the attitude and knowledge of participants regarding corruption. Majority of the participants indicated that they are much aware of what corruption is and its causes.

During day one, participants were taken through some skits and plays that carry out basic information about corruption and its causes. “I like the games because they are full of fun and good lessons that address anti-corruption” Said 13 years old Peter from Muthurwa primary school.

Over 300 students both boys and girls from Dandora primary have been enrolled to the show corruption ‘Red card’ program. The program that commenced in the month of January 2016 has been conducted three times in a week. The implementers of the program who are dubbed as Anti-corruption crusaders have been teaching participants on various issues including integrity and leadership through various soccer games.
Since the inception of the show corruption ‘Red card’ program, the participating students have been actively involved in all the sessions that do require active participation. With every participant having a great ambition for his/her future life, the issue of integrity has been a critical topic to discuss and think about. During the first day, all participants were given some surveys to fill to gauge their knowledge about corruption and their attitude and its results. With corruption being a major issue in our societies today, every participant was quite aware of its consequences.

“Corruption has been a great enemy towards achieving any development and for any society to move forward in terms of development, we should all unite and say ‘NO’ to corruption. I like this program that uses football to teach about the dangers of corruption.” Said 14 year old peter.
