KPL Mashemeji Derby

Kenya Premier League together with AFC leopards and Gor Mahia supported Missing Child Kenya’s cause for awareness to celebrate International Missing Children’s day 2019 through a CSR initiative during the 2 clubs’ Mashemeji Derby encounter on Sunday May 19 at the Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani.

Across the world, Footballers are accompanied to the pitch by child mascots as a way of honoring the role played by these children. The 2 team players walked across the pitch holding photographs of missing children to raise awareness about this alarming trend in Kenya. KTN aired the Live Match across Kenya. On an update of good news… 3 of the children were found and reunited with family.

Missing Child Kenya depends a lot on the social good of individuals across Kenya. When you share a missing child alert, you are making your much valued individual contribution to reuniting a missing child with their family. With your help we continue to grow and make our community outreach efforts more sustainable.

International and national organizations, NGOs and other stakeholders dealing with the issue of missing children need to harness their efforts, and enhance data sharing, provision of information and reporting of the missing.

Protecting children is a shared responsibility of states, at the level of law enforcement authorities, guardians, reception centers, hotline operators, and more. Failing cooperation and coordination amongst national and transnational stakeholders causes obstacles to bringing the children to safety and protecting them from harm.

Thank You KPL.
Thank You Gor Mahia.
Thank You AFC Leopards
Thank you to all the Football Fans.
