Kisumu Youth Football Association
Kisumu Youth Football (Soccer) Association (KYFA) is a sports-for-development organization that uses football as a tool for social change. KYFA has been hosting football competitions in the greater Kisumu area since 2004. Nearly 3,000 girls and boys ages 5-18 participate in our seasonal football competitions, which are complemented by life skills trainings, academic recognition programmes, behaviour change towards WASH and Environmental awareness activities. In addition to running leagues from March to October of each year, KYFA provides technical football trainings and engages in numerous community development activities. We see sports as a low-cost, high-impact tool for advancing a broad range of community development objectives. Our network of Coaches, Referees, Team Managers and other officials provide a stable environment for the players to develop Physically, Academically, Socially and Emotionally.
