Project Purpose, Vision and Goals
a) This is our vision for the project?
The YOUTH of Kasarani in-Nairobi have numerous talents and potentials, which could be harnessed for their better future. To help them nurture these talents and aspirations to near full potential, Sports will play a crucial role. It is envisaged in the spirit of promoting the youth to live positively instead of engaging in criminal and other dangerous activities – drug abuse, premarital sex, among others.
b) What change or transformation in your community would NAKUMATT HOLDING enable?
This means that the influx of school leavers and dropouts has played a significant role towards deteriorating moral standards in the society, hence creating some upheavals in the realm of social interactions yet these young men and women are endowed with talents and aspirations that can be nurtured and propped to full growth, thus giving their energy alternative projections.
Through sports, they could be introduced to and inculcated with a rich body of knowledge on public health and environmental management education, AIDS, reproductive health, nutrition and cultural education, as some of the contemporary issues affecting the Kenyan society. The committee aims at invoking active participation by the players in the implementation and understanding of the issues at hand.
d) What goals/outcomes do you hope to achieve?
Like many parts of the world, there has been a growing population of young people who find themselves without meaningful occupations after completing high school, college or during the holidays. Due to economic hardships being experienced today in the society, many families have been hard-hit, resulting into among other things, disabilities to pay school fees, hence an increase in school dropouts. This has ushered in new influences and dangers to the existing social fabrics, and with increased community interactions, conditions have been bred for dangerous tendencies among the youth.
The main results will include:
• To promote the sporting talents of identified players in Nairobi area.
• To educate the youth on issues concerning public health, environmental, management, Aids, nutrition, reproductive health and culture;
• To promote interest in youth affairs in the entire country through field days, seminars, and workshops.
• To act as a vehicle through which the youth come together to share experiences and aspirations.
Recruit talents in Nairobi and its environments as early as development programs for future use as soccer becomes very expensive in purchasing players.
Our young players will only be loaned out to other teams after consultation with both parties.
• To create a sports department on its own, to organize, budget, market and manage its own affairs for the academy. When it comes to sports, for it to prosper the only way it is to have it managed on its own away from youth affairs. In the past the academy has been experiencing difficulties cause of the management concerning the youth.
d) How does your ACADEMY engage or get feedback from those you intend to serve or benefit? (For example: community participation in decision making or project planning, beneficiary evaluations)
For a along time the youth. Have remained idle and inactive. Gangland modes of behavior threaten to infiltrate the players and completely change the peaceful way of doing things. Upon this realization, a committee was formed to look into the formation of teams at the college. It is intended to strengthen the capacities of the players and to shape their destiny and put in place measures that will create increased awareness on matters concerning them through sporting activities. These issues include public health and environmental management.
One of the initial steps towards this project is the sports-day, seminars and workshops to assess the response among the targeted YOUTH, for example, about 10% (600 YOUTHS) of the YOUTH population took part in the sport-day as participants and another 20% (3000 YOUTH) were present to cheer the fellow YOUTH, the Drama Festival must have passed unnoticed by other YOUTH cause of the short notice that was there to prepare. To start our objectives, we shall concentrate with sports-day and seminars and Workshops, The-seminars and workshops will focus on the AIDS scourge and the drug -abuse-Pandemic currently taking toll of the populace in which the players are based, the drama club could entertain players when ever possible during this seminars and workshops.
e) Timeline of the project (start date, end date, any significant milestones)
The sports-day intends to highlight the activities of the youth. Youths will be given an opportunity to nurture and develop their various sporting talents and skills under the keen observation of qualified sports professionals. Players will also be introduced to basic principles pertaining to issues in the realm of public health, reproductive health, Aids, environmental management, nutrition and culture.
For logistical reasons, and in specific since this is the beginning, the youth are Confining the recruitment of membership to Kasarani youth sports association (KYSA). Membership is intended to comprise the Kasarani youth and its environs. To set the stage for proper implementation, an interim committee is in place and a number of young people mainly from Kasarani are already undergoing training in sports at the MOI SPORTS CENTRE KASARANI grounds. Once established, it is expected that a steering committee of not more than ten (10) members of staff will be formed. These members will be selected from various professional backgrounds, based on their interests and knowledge on youth issues, especially in the areas the YOUTH have chosen to address. Some of the YOUTH activities will be playing football, hockey, volleyball and tennis for purposes of entering competitive tournaments. Further, the -YOUTH will engage in public health, reproductive. Health, Aids awareness, environmental management, takes part time jobs within KYSA and nutrition issues around the academy and Nairobi as a whole.
