Stand Up Shout Out Presents The ‘Ubuntu Football Festival’

Coastweek-- The Stand Up Shout Out club at AKA, M would like to host a Mombasa wide football tournament on Saturday the 11th and Sunday the 12th of November 2017, on the field.

We would like to provide the opportunity for students to be able to interact with people from a range of socioeconomic classes and backgrounds.

Therefore the tournament’s main aims are to foster social interaction and cultural awareness as well as increasing community participation because as a school we value pluralism and encourage diversity, as well as the sharing of innovative ideas.

We also found that we would like to increase the integration of sports in community and service options for students, with only one or two CAS groups utilizing sports to interact with the community group.

Therefore, by virtue of having a tournament we can use this opportunity to hold skill development workshops so AKA, M students, and tournament participants can share skills and interact socially.

This is the third Ubuntu Football Festival hosted by Stand Up Shout Out at AKA,M.

The club’s previous soccer tournament was extremely successful as there was an attendance of approximately over 1000 people.

This included players and spectators.

Additionally several significant and important individuals in Mombasa attended the event such as Mombasa governor, Hassan Ali Joho.

The club received a tremendous amount of positive feedback, which has led to the planning of a third Football Festival in Mombasa.

The previous two events we hosted were huge successes whereby all the funds we made were invested into projects targeting to better the community further, for example, the money that we collected from the most recent UFF was invested in a marine life project started by a youth individual to not only save marine life but also empower other youths to do the same.

The theme of this year’s Ubuntu Football Fesitval is the Khadija Primary School Library.

As a division we have carried out various projects in the past, one of the being “Feed A Soul”.

This project was carried out at Khadija Primary School with the goals of providing the school with better facilities, educational requirements and to build bonds between SUSONIANS and the Khadija Primary School community, allowing both parties to grow and learn from each other.

The division intends on continuing this project at the school through the construction of a library which is a facility that is extremely important and beneficial in the education of children.

We would like to do so between the months of February and May 2017 as to secure a concrete facility for the school allowing it to grow and for the children to be able to access such a facility.

We have created a relationship with the school and have grown to care deeply for the school’s wellbeing and the students’ as well.

As a division we believe that through such support and empathy we will be able to provide the financially disadvantaged students at the school to be able to access opportunities that we are able to access and for them to be able to grow and learn in an environment that is conducive and advantageous.

Time of event: 11th November 2017, 10:00am to 6:00pm,  12th November 2017, 10:00 am to 5.00pm

Age Categories: Boys: U19,U25 and Girls: U19
