Grassroots leaders have been challenged to initiate sports academies to nurture and promote talents in young children.

Speaking at a children’s sporting event at Thika YMCA Grounds over the weekend, Madam Gladys Chania Mwangi emphasised the need to harness and tap young and diverse talents at early stages. She was delighted to meet young boys and girls who were already showing great potential in various sporting activities.

“This is a perfect opportunity to nurture and encourage the sporting talents of our young children. I would like to thank their coach William Ndung’u who has gone out of his way to promote young talents in sports and he has ideally positioned himself to inform and inspire the next generation of young boys and girls to follow in his footsteps,” said Chania.

Chania reckoned that sports were good for the health of the youth and was a very important tool to fight negative social influences on our children.

Sports also provide healthy alternatives to harmful actions, such as drug abuse and involvement in crime. We can use it as a prevention measure and embark on an extensive anti-drug abuse awareness campaign even in schools,” she said.

Josephta Oyiela Mukobe, Principal Secretary for the State Department of Special Programmes – Ministry of Devolution and Planning who was the chief guest applauded this initiative and promised to support youth clubs in both sports and the fight against substance abuse.

She donated sports uniforms to the best performers. 

Right @Home Ltd and TWAADA, both associated with Madam Chania, donated two computers to the club for their new training and changing hall at the YMCA. Other Sponsors included Telecom Kenya who donated T-shirts and hats and Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) who donated chairs for the hall.
