Aims of the Tournament

The help2kids Charity Football tournament is an annual sports event in Dar es Salaam, aimed at connecting with the local community and fundraising for our help2kids projects.  The Tournament is a one-day event, which pits teams from local schools against one another for a chance to win a top prize.

The event took place: Saturday 21st July 2018

Location: The Green (Uwanja wa Farasi) Kenyatta Drive Oyster Bay from 10am – 5pm

The goal is to provide a fun and safe event for kids in Dar es Salaam while creating stronger ties to the community and networking with nearby schools. For the first event, we had 18 teams participated, with both girls and boys teams. We were supported by a  variety of sponsors who helped to make the day a success.

Football, games, entertainment, food, raffle prizes and fun
