To Reduce barriers to equitable access, retention and completion of education at primary level in TYSA target schools and communities.
TYSA seeks to use the advantage of value based sports for all to mobilize children, parents and communities to ensure children join, stay and complete school. TYSA builds on its existing models using
football with other partners to create safe spaces and to make school attractive for children reducing barriers to children’s enrollment and attendance.
TYSA also seeks to work with local leaders and the various structures in the devolved governments to ensure local legislation and bylaws on primary education. In the target area, indicators for WASH and other sanitation related illnesses still reveal serious challenges; cases of open defecation and poor hand washing are still prominent and a key transmitter of disease in schools and communities. TYSA, therefore, continues to utilize its sports for health models focusing on preventive strategies through the promotion of healthy and active lifestyles among youth, campaigns on health through soccer as well as mass community sensitization events.
TYSA implements models and initiatives in and outside the school setting with different partners. The ultimate end here is a youthful population that is conscious of proper hygiene as a way of life. The target populations under this area included; children 5 years and above, teachers, parents, community leaders,
health educators, youth 18 to 25 years in and out of school.
To increase participation of youth in Leadership, governance and development processes
We had the privilege of being part of the 9th Edition of the Youth Leadership camp which was held in Berlin, Germany and brought together Youth from different Sub Saharan Africa countries for 12 days. The purpose of the camp was for the youth to share experiences on their different sports for development approaches. The camp which was organized by United Nations Office On sports for Development and Peace (UNOSDP in partnership with the German government through the ministry of international
co-operation and Development placed emphasis on the need for peaceful coexistence of communities which is one of TYSA’s main focal areas.
‘This platform provided TYSA an opportunity to share its work and experiences in development through sports’ highlights Master Albert Wetiatia who represented the organization.
