Meet the Passionate Coach with Golden Heart for Soccer.

Today I want to appreciate coach Omore for his dedication in nurturing soccer talent in the community level also known as grassroots soccer. Many successful soccer stars like Mariga, Wanyama, Oliech just to mention but a few came from a humble beginning, playing soccer in the dusty fields such as drago, depo, red carpet and many others. Coaches at the grassroots levels have been instrumental in nurturing our greatest talents and in rare occasions they get to be acknowledged for their efforts or even supported to grow their skills despite facing many challenges in the team and the surrounding environment.

Omore is a true example of a coach with passion and despite his physical challenge he is one of the dedicated coaches that has many teams in our community in Mathare North. He is in charge of Mathare North Rangers teams from the age of 12, 14 and over 16 years, one of his biggest achievement is winning the top prize of the just concluded Mathare North Festive Season Soccer Tournament 2017/ 2018.

Wilsen Initiative (WI) has been supporting Mathare North Rangers teams and our immediate goal is to have exposure for the coach and the players through playing tournaments and participating in more profession soccer coaching courses and life skills training to perfect their skills.

We invite well wishers to help us with soccer shoes, balls, uniforms etc, to help our coach and his team achieve the desired dream.

Soccer Shoe Campaign 2018

#ChistmasGiftSoccerShoes #SoccerForHope #SoccerForChange #NextStar #ChistmasGiftSoccerShoes #SoccerForHope #SoccerForChange #NextStar

On 5th December 2018 we made a call to our network of friends and well wishers to join hands with us in our annual Soccer Shoes Campaign Gift by donating quality soccer shoe/s to the young stars who aren’t in a position to acquire one of the most valuable resources in their soccer career. Many young people play with bare foot not knowing the risks they expose themselves playing in bad surface soccer pitch in the community, on the other hand there is a big gap in acquiring a soccer shoe, soccer balls, soccer Cons, tracksuits, uniforms etc.

At Wilsen Initiative we want to bridge gap by providing the most basic resource like soccer balls, quality training, uniforms, etc. This December our target was to reach 20, but by today were are happy to acquire 30 soccer boots since we made the call. The campaign started the year 2000, whereby a total of more than 300 young stars have been reached.

Come, 1st Jan 2019, the campaign will not come an end, but will enter into the open contributions where anyone can add to the basket gift at their call through the year.
