We have identified a group of youths who came together and constructed a makeshift basketball court in Mnarani, Kilifi. Despite the poor state of the court it attracts no less than 20 youths every evening who participate in basketball games.
The Rotary club of Kilifi proposes to construct a standard basketball court for Mnarani community youths based in Kilifi county. The court will be constructed on land that has been allocated to the Mnarani community for sports and recreational activities. It is expected that the beneficiaries of the basketball court will mainly be youths from Kilifi town since there is no other public basketball court in Kilifi.
The Rotary club of Kilifi will also benefit as the project will create visibility for the club since the basketball court shall be branded with rotary logos. More importantly the project will act as platform for the Rotary Club of Kilifi members to interact with Kilifi youths and discuss issues such as drug abuse and sexual health.
