    Charles Otieno – Vijana Amani Pamoja Program Officer:

    To me the training was good.  And it not only taught us how to train our youth on football skills, but also helped to show us how to use football to teach social impact messages.  So in the end we are not only football coaches but we are also impacting the community through football.

    Florence Adhiambo – former Women’s U-17 National Team Coach and Former Women’s National Team Player:

    Mafundisho lmekuwaq mzuri sana na sis kama ma coach wa Kenya tumefundishwa mengi sana kuhusu witu tofauti.  Na nina lmani kuwa tutatumia kufunisha na.  Na tunashukuru nacoach waliotupa mafundisho Karibu Kenya.

    Translated: The training has been perfect and we as coaches of Kenya were being taught a lot about so many things.  I’m sure we are going to use the skills that we have been taught and we are grateful that the coaches have given us these ideas.  Welcome to Kenya.

    Morris Shikanda –Assistant Coach Kenya National Amputee Team and former Tusker (Kenyan) Premier League Player:

    It was a very good training program.  We will improve in a very good training program in Jericho if we put more into practice and also we will improve in social skills.
