KISUMU YOUTH FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION
THE ORGANIZATION

KYFA- Kisumu Youth Football Association (KYFA) is a sports-for-development organization that uses football as a tool for social change. KYFA has been hosting football competitions in the greater Kisumu area since 2004. Nearly 3,000 girls and boys ages 5-18 participate in our seasonal football competitions, which are complemented by life skills trainings, academic recognition programmes, behaviour change towards WASH and Environmental awareness activities.
