The launch of the mini fun football pitch at Ilkimatare Primary School took place on Friday 21st May 2021. Water4Wildlife Maasai Mara handed over the pitch and football equipment i.e. football uniforms and balls in partnership with UEFA Foundation for Children.
Pupils at Ikimatare Primary School celebrate as they received donations from UEFA Foundation for Children.
The project was supported by the school board members, parents, teachers and conservancy representatives. The children were absolutely thrilled with the uniforms and balls. We use football as the perfect tool to teach children about wildlife conservation as it is a friendly way which appeals to all children, both boys and girls.
This is the first project for Kick the Ball, Save our Wildlife and we hope to continue with this initiative to other schools in benefiting our communities.
