Soccer Balls Donation From Alive And Kicking

Alive and Kicking make durable sports balls in Kenya, Zambia and Ghana, keeping adults in employment, helping children play, and raising health awareness through sport.

 

 

Today we received 17 quality balls that were given to each team participating in the ongoing Mathare North Festive Season Soccer Tournament (MNFSST-2018 featuring under 12 years).

We are grateful to join their list of communities who have received soccer balls as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). If you have a sports club we would encourage you to buy your balls at Alive and Kicking, they make quality balls, create employment and also donated balls to schools, disadvantaged communities and youth teams around the world.

Mathare North Festive Super Tournament 3rd Edition 2014 – 2015.

This is an annual tournament that is organized by the Wilsen Initiative (Wi) and the youth in the community. The tournament always kicks off on 26th December with the finals played on the new year’s celebrations on 1st January. The main objective is to connect the community through soccer during the holiday and beyond, we recognized that not all people travel out of the city during the long festive seasons due to one reason or the other and this leaves the youth with nothing to do but to indulge in other activities that doesn’t add value to their lives.

In this tournament every team is a winner with the main focus not being cash rewards but rather building lasting relationships that will foster peaceful co-existing of people of different communities. This year’s theme was connecting community through soccer and talent display. In a great way we thank all the organizing committee who dedicated their time, skills and resources like making fixtures, communication, officiating etc, all the teams and their supporters for maintaining discipline, peace and fair play through the tournament.
