LARRY ASEGO DONATES FOOTBALL KITS IN KISUMU
After successfully providing football kits to Makadara youths in Nairobi, Larry Asego and his team took the initiative to Kisumu last Saturday.
“The idea is to give football kits to deserving junior teams because this talent has to be tapped at a tender age,” Larry said.
The junior team from Nyawita slum received kits from kind donors like Kiss 100’s Caroline Mutoko who donated footballs, Keval from www.kshiv.org who helped source for 40 full football kits, Heartstrings Kenya provided lunch for the over 60 children who showed up for the games while Oxfam provided transport and prize money for the tournament.
Oxfam GB staff member Alun McDonald promised to support a club that will name itself after his home team – Swansea.
“Next we are hoping to find an organised junior football team in Mombasa, Kilifi or Malindi,” Larry said.
He added that this initiative aims at building football teams to reckon with in the East African region and beyond.
