VSA received several training materials and a bag from FOOTBALL CLUB ROMA, A.S.D. POL.CINECITTA’ BETTINI and MMV CAPITOLINA MMV CALCIO A 5; the donations were sent through Afrikasi Onlus who are running education projects in Deep Sea slum in Nairobi, Kenya.
VSA has partnered with Afrikasi Onlus towards the education of children through sports, as we use soccer as a tool to educate our children and youths. In August 2007, VSA founder and director Dennis Otieno met Afrikasi.org committee Stefano who introduced him to the late Oscar Sperendio, who was in Rome and searching for African sports associations that help children. Then Oscar traveled to Kenya, taking several training materials and equipment with him. He was very happy with the commitment of our children and promised to work with us. Unfortunately, Oscar passed away in February 2008, just one week before returning to Kenya. It was a terrible loss for the VSA Family.
Through Afrikasi Onlus, VSA has managed to partner with Totti Soccer School in Rome – Italy: the school’s coaching staff donates training materials and offers financial support so that Director Dennis can keep on working on the VSA Project in Kenya. We wish to thank Carlos Sorbara and Maurizio from Totti Soccer School.
We at VSA, we really appreciate very much all the support we receive from Totti Soccer School and Afrikasi Onlus.
