Football Kenya Federation will from Saturday, February 9, 2019, hold a five-day leadership and governance workshop in Eldoret, through funding from World Football Governing body FIFA.

The workshop targets Women Representatives from the Federation’s Branches, representatives from the Women Leagues, representatives from the FKF Women Football Committee and the Referees Appointment Committee as well as former women footballers.

FKF remains committed to FIFA’s long term goal of increasing the participation of women in football. It is for this reason that we have opted to empower women who are in leadership positions in football,” said FKF Secretary-General Robert Muthomi.

The workshop is part of FIFA’s Pilot Project for women football development, where the World Governing Body aims to reach at least 60 Million women by 2026.

Late last year, close to 120 women coaches benefited from the Federation’s coaching courses. The coaches were largely drawn from primary schools, which the Federation targets to exploit as centers for nurturing young talent. 40 young referees under the age of 25 were also trained.
