“I joined Angaza in 2011 through my local football team Mavitu FC, when I joined Angaza I was in primary school and played in Angaza community football league for two years. Its through my participation in angaza activities that I got scholarship opportunity to continue with my secondary education, the scholarship was a life changing opportunity for me for I am an orphan and I could not afford to pay form my education. Today I have already finished my secondary education and now I am a football coach training Angaza teams. Through this journey I have learned alot of life skills and I improved my knowledge areas in life and football coaching"
