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

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
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
