YOSSO United Arusha organize ‘Go Green Initiative’

Around 100 children along with their parents, participated in a football match and environment cleaning event on 02 July 2012 in Arusha, Soweto playground. The event, organized by YOSSO ’s football school Project, was the first of its kind so far and included children from surround communities and primary schools. Activities on the day included a friendly football match between YOSSO United Arusha and Stone Fire FC, life skills training, environment education, participation in collection of rubbish and litter around the playground. YOSSO United ’s coaches, who work with many of these children, provided the training during the event. The focus of the training was on new approaches to improve the cleanness for both children and surrounding environment which involved greater participation of the child.
