The FIFA/FKF Pilot Project for women football development has come to an end. This was a series of coaching courses around the country as the first action plan with more activities set to take place next year.
A referees training programme, which drew aspiring referees under the age of 25 from across the country, also culminated in Meru.
The coaching courses kicked off in Mombasa for grass root coaches and sports teachers from the Coast region. It moved to Nairobi and Kisumu successfully hosted the final phase, with participants from Nyanza, Western and parts of Rift Valley taking part.
“FIFA aims to increase participation of women in football. FKF has thus opted to invest in young women through coaching education, and we hope that they will in turn influence even more women at the grassroots," FKF Deputy President Doris Petra said.
A leadership course for elected women representatives will kick off the next phase of the project early next year.
