Consultancy for Strategic Management Facilitator at Kisumu Youth Football Association (KYFA) kenya 2013
Request For Proposal: Strategic Planning Consultant
Kisumu Youth Football Association (KYFA)
P.O. Box 13- Mega City
Kisumu Youth Football Association (KYFA) is seeking proposals for a qualified external consultant to work with the Staff and the Council to develop a comprehensive 3-year strategic plan.
2. Organization Background
Kisumu Youth Football Association (KYFA) began in 2004 when a need arose for organized competitions amongst local teams. A league competition for the Under-18 age category was formed.
KYFA currently consists of 103 teams representing 52 clubs, with nearly 2500 youth players between the ages of 8 and 18.
In addition to running leagues, KYFA engages in numerous community development projects, including a girls’ mentorship project, a sports and advocacy programme for children with special needs, a field rehabilitation project, and most recently a school partnership linking football with water, sanitation and hygiene improvement.
KYFA began as an organization to host structured youth football matches; however, as the above activities demonstrate, it has developed into a ‘sports-for-development’ organization, using football as a tool for social change.
At one time, KYFA was entirely dependent on grants to keep the office and the activities running. However, KYFA has recently begun partnering with corporate bodies in order to fund the football leagues and major events.
