Harambee Stars midfielder Johanna Omollo is the 2020 SOYA Awards Community Hero winner.
Omollo through his Johanna Omollo Foundation situated in Dandora-Nairobi beat off competitions from Bernard Makumi (Football/Athletics), Peter Ongondo (Cricket) and Erick Kimaiyo (Athletics).
The Foundation offers a well rounded environment to develop future talent and bring hope to the people of Dandora according to Omollo.
On their website, they believe in providing young footballers, both boys and girls with scholarship opportunities to enable them to continue with their education while pursuing their sporting talent; their main objective being to motivate the children in Dandora to become winners not only in the soccer fields but also score the most important goals in arts, community service and education.
Late last year, the midfielder who plies his trade with Belgium top division side Cercle Brugge was presented with the $25,000 FIFPRO Merit Award for 2019 for the same work with his foundation and is a member of the Common Goal program.
The midfielder was part of the Harambee Stars team that was eliminated from 2019 African Cup of Nations and has been an integral member of his club in Belgium.
