Mbooni Youth (Kisau Kiteta) Athletics Tournament

Darius Mainga, devoted community leader in Mbooni, Kenya (Makueni County, east of Nairobi) is organizing a large athletics tournament for the youth of the Kiteta/Kisau ward.  70 teams are playing across men’s  and women’s soccer, volleyball and rugby. The economic and emotional impact of the 2020 Covid lockdowns has dealt a particularly severe blow to those already living in economically disadvantaged circumstances in the developing world. The youth unemployment rate in Kenya is very high, the poverty is very real and times are very hard. This tournament will help the youth maintain engagement in positive activities during these challenging times. All donations will go directly to funding the tournament, and will support the purchase of equipment, uniforms, trophies, water and glucose for the athletes, and cash prizes for the winning teams. Darius needs a lot of support to make this tournament happen for the youth of this region. Let’s join together to help support one another, world wide. Any size donation welcome!
