KCA Unwaivering Committment to Promoting Youth Wellness Through Sports

Sports participation has mitigated the COVID-19 pandemic’s harmful effects on youth's physical and mental health, so it may be more important than ever to make opportunities to play easily accessible.

As we prepare for the 2nd Edition of the Pamoja Soccer Tournament in 2024, we’d like to recognize our inaugural edition's participating teams - Wazalendo FC, Zan Heroes FC, Toronto Select FC, Ivory FC - for making the tournament a resounding success.

The tournament aims at promoting Youth Mental Health and Well-being while serving as a powerful platform to strengthen bonds between diverse communities, fostering understanding and appreciation through sports to create a harmonious environment, promoting unity and creating a sense of belonging for Canadians.

KCA would also like to thank all participants who turned up to cheer up their team of choice.

The 2nd Edition of Pamoja Soccer Tournament is expected to involve a large number teams and engage more stakeholders. Stay tuned to our social media channels for more updates.
