Victor Odhiambo Akumu, a teacher at Nyagondo Secondary School, Siaya County, is among the 27 coaches who graduated with their CAF C license on Friday, October 27, 2023, in Buruburu.

The Football for Schools program, initiated by the federation in July, aligns with the federation’s key priorities of Youth and Women’s Football.

As part of this initiative, the federation pledged to distribute balls and equipment to selected schools nationwide. Additionally, teachers directly involved with school children are benefiting from the Federation’s capacity-building programs. Victor is one of the teachers who have gained from these coaching courses.

“I ventured into coaching to create a conducive learning environment for school children to acquire comprehensive football knowledge and skills. This approach ensures that they learn the game with less fear of failure and greater enjoyment. They can skillfully play football, which will be beneficial in the long run,” Coach Victor expressed.

FKF Nairobi East Secretary General, Dickson Doyo, emphasized why the Federation remains committed to providing coaching courses for coaches to enhance their knowledge.

“We have numerous teams in Kenya, and with these teams come a multitude of coaches who are continuously seeking knowledge and skills to elevate the quality of football in the country. This drive motivates the federation to continue offering these courses, which enable coaches to gain the necessary skills and knowledge for personal growth and the overall improvement of football,” Mr. Doyo stated.

The one-month course was conducted by CAF/FKF instructors Zedekiah Otieno and Salim Ali.
