The spirit of giving back to the community is a noble cause that should be embraced and engaged in by organizations as it’s about making a difference in the society and in people’s lives without focusing on the monetary potential of the supporting entities. In November, 2014, the same concept was hatched to organize a football tournament dubbed Dr. Cathy Kamanze 7-Aside Cup held in Jericho, Nairobi within the Eastland’s suburban. The function saw different neighborhood teams register for the competition, of which they were not regular or usual national football clubs in the country. Loaded with the knowledge of the area and the modus operandi, she made a decision to not follow the conventional way of doing things and decided to adjust the norm by making the day livelier for the attendees in a much different way. The tournament and the cup brought many players and spectators together. This event provided an opportunity to encourage the youth to shun criminal activities that may land them in trouble, but try to manage time by doing beneficial and constructive activities. With her dedicated support, Dr. Cathy hopes to do more for the community in the coming years as a way of giving back through sports that bring people together despite cultural backgrounds differences which she termed as a tool for development and peace. Such activities help the youth realize their talents, identify their strengths and weakness in the games and also extend the same worthy cause to others in the community.
