TAFA Soccer Academy

A community centre committed to uplifting the lives of the youth living in Kasarani Village on the shores of Lake Naivasha.

TAFA is a Community Based Organisation situated close to Loldia House, adjacent to Lake Naivasha. The project’s objective is to engage the youth of Kasarani Village in healthy social activities. By keeping the children (many of whom come from disadvantaged backgrounds) involved in the project, they are kept out of trouble and learn important life skills. It uses football and its community centre as a platform to do this.

The project is run by four teachers, who dedicate their time to train highly talented young boys and girls from the age of seven years to seventeen years old. It is registered (GIL/SCSD/CBO/135) at the State Department for Social Protection, Department of Social Development.

We support the project through the daily provision of “uji” (finger millet porridge). This simple meal ensures the children do not go hungry and provides them with energy required to concentrate in school and on the pitch. We also provide sports equipment, uniforms, food parcels for their families and stationery supplies. We invite the children to visit Loldia House and arrange for educational game drives and boat rides which we help will inspire this next generation to protect their natural heritage. Field trips have also been conducted to the Elsamere Conservation Center and the Kenya Bird of Prey Trust Naivasha Raptor Center.

If you would like to make a donation towards meals, trophies and medals, team uniforms, football boots, footballs or learning materials we would be happy to facilitate the purchasing and distribution of these items on your behalf. Donations can be made via our secure online donation link.

Loldia House guests are very welcome to visit the project.
