 Welcome to our page…. The Y&S Committee is delighted to tell you on the developments of our youth in our Community. This year we have exciting news to tell you, we will be participating in the Festival of Friendship - Kenya games which will be held from 12th Nov 2017 – 03rd Dec 2017 in Nairobi, Kenya. This Sport mega event has attracted many Asian Communities in Kenya and it will be a platform to showcase our youth’s ability to compete with other communities. There will be many games to participate in, I encourage our youth members to take full interest and part on this event. Over the past few months we have been working hand-in-hand with the youth representatives of each community to prepare the groundwork for the games and the efforts of each of our member has been commendable.

Some of the events we will be organising are: Football and Volleyball Tournament, Walking Treasure Hunt and Family Fund day in liaise with Ladies committee… We shall update you on the events as time comes closer..
