For centuries, sports fields around the world have been bringing together players from different races, genders, ages and classes. Sporting events are participatory and SAMOSA uses sports as a powerful tool to bring about inclusiveness, confidence, leadership and cooperation.
Sporting activities have also brought individuals and communities together and have helped to bridge ethnic and cultural divides, promote social integration and foster tolerance. Sporting competitions have also helped to reduce tension and generate dialogue in some instances.
Sport teaches the value of effort and how to manage victory, as well as defeat. When the convening powers of sports are emphasized, sport becomes a powerful vehicle through which the SAMOSA message can be actualized.
The SAMOSA 2012 Sports program will focus on bringing people of all backgrounds together on the playing field to celebrate one of society’s most important activity – Play!
Rock n’BBQ with Murfy’s Flaw

Nairobi’s most famous and popular alternative rock band will thrill SAMOSA fans and the audience in the evening, as they relax and wind down after a day of enlivening sporting activities.
The organisers are currently signing up designers and vendors to showcase and sell their wares at the Kitenge Festival, happening on 20th October @ the Village Market. Get in touch with them directly if interested to be part of it.
