Ms Abdikadir and the Team (Hodi) Arrive In Moscow

Kenya has been well represented in the World Cup Tournament in Moscow despite the National team, Harambee Stars, failing to book a ticket there. Its not just journalists and fans there, but also young visionary players who will take part in the Fifa Foundation Festival this week.

The Fifa festival brings together 48 non-governmental organisations from 38 countries around the world that work to make a positive difference through football. It is an action packed 10-day programme which includes a football tournament in Red Square, Moscow, and the purpose of the event is to showcase the power of football to change lives.

Two teams from Kenya, Horn of Africa Development Initiative (HODI) and the Mathare Youth Sports Association were selected by Fifa among 100 applicants from East Africa.
