In June, 2001 Luhwahwa Youth Development Foundation (LUOYODEFO) organized and sponsored “SPORTS FOR CHANGE” tournament for Kajwenge Parish. The event had (and hopefully will continue to have but not limited to) the following activities;-
(a). There was guest briefs on;- the role of youth in development; what is needed of youth to have sustained community; how youth can influence and contribute towards change; how the community can support youth building and formation; education as a tool; etc
(b). During tournaments, the opening/ concluding remarks and half-time shows will all be used to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS; youth behavior; the importance of education; supporting girl child education; youth building/ formation among the public.
(c). At the end, give a trophy to first team and some small prizes to the 2nd and 3rd teams, best player, top - scorer, and best goal keeper.
We engaged 14 teams (8 for males and 6 for females) and entertained 400 - 650 spectators at a time, of broad age range and a diversity of occupations. It is such an exciting event that gave young people and the community an opportunity to share, play, interact in a funny way, and raise awareness on health education and career development among the public.
We would like to engage the whole 5 parishes of Kisinga subcounty – allowing more teams to participate. We will discuss an appropriate framework for promoting the interest and social corporate responsibility goals with local and opinion leader, already formed teams, groups of youth and women, schools, and the lower local government in the area of publicity and awareness. Once a time frame is develop, we use the local FM radio to create awareness on the event (purpose; coverage; participation; eligibility; timing; benefit; sponsors; etc). At the same time, we will jointly work with these stakeholder to boost the existing organizing committee (that served for the previous event), which will then review existing rules and regulations, budget/ procure necessary materials and logistics for successful event.
Our goal:
Our sponsorship goal for the 2nd sports competition due in late December, 2011 is $ 3,200. However, part of this fund will be locally raised through registration fees for interested teams; well wishers’ contributions; and food collections from the community.

Hello Neighbors,

It was a very intersting event that lead to mass community participation. Our sports day attracted mant teams with only 12 teams meeting the strict deadline (10 males and 2 females) - hence only 12 participated, each recieving a ball and above all the trophies they competited for was taken by the winners. The event was also attracted over 800 spectators. Attached are some few pictures
