According to Mohamed, the Young Talents Soccer Academy, Embul Bul, Ngong aims to help children to succeed both on and off the pitch.
“We use the power of football to address social issues, to teach them life skills. We want them to learn to respect themselves, to know the effects of drug abuse, the effects of violence and crime,” says Hamisi.

Reflecting the shared values of the two companies, the Future Stars programme was set up by WorldRemit together with Arsenal to acknowledge and reward the valuable contribution of youth coaches to their local communities.

Both WorldRemit and Arsenal are optimistic that the training will help Hamisi Mohamed to play a transformational role in Kenya and internationally.
