Seeking to inspire young leaders through football

Equipping young children and youth with leadership skills is vital if communities desire to enjoy sustained success in their daily lives.

On 23 September, Inuka Direct will join forces with Nyeri Youth Sports Academy to mark a belated United Nations’ International Peace Day with a focus on valuable leadership.

Sports play a critical role in inspiring positive leadership in Africa and this is concurred by Dr. Kellen Kiambati, a senior lecturer at Karatina University who will be a facilitator during the occasion. “Because sports is a behavioural process it can help inculcate the right and acceptable behaviours”, she says.

This will be the third activity that Inuka Direct will be organising under the Global Peace Games for Children and Youth, a global movement that seeks to celebrate the power of sports in inculcating peaceful values and is spearheaded by a US based organisation known as Playsoccer Non Profit Organization.

The highlight of the activity will see Inuka Direct delivering value-based football drills that will teach children various problem solving and leadership skills.
