Collaborations
Kenyan-Heart strongly believes in the power of working together with other people and organizations towards common goals in the spirit of collaboration.


Some of the girls in action, participating in the "Make a Healthy Heart your Goal" Football Tournament held on 12th July 2014. The event is a result of the collaboration amongst Kenyan-Heart, UEFA and WHF.

WHF/UEFA funded Football Tournament

Kenyan-Heart National Foundation (KHNF) through World Heart Federation (WHF) was privileged to be granted the mandate by UEFA, to run the initiative “Make a Healthy Heart your Goal” with a special focus on Girls’ and the youth in Kenya. It is a FIRST in East Africa.

The “Make a Healthy Heart Your Goal” (MHHG) initiative was developed by the World Heart Federation through UEFA Women’s Euro 2013 and its partners. This initiative provides a platform to educate our youth on cardiovascular risks and the actions to take now, to avoid paying the penalty of an inactive unhealthy lifestyle, later on in life.

To raise awareness and promote the tenet "Make a Healthy Heart your Goal", Kenyan-Heart organized a pilot invitational Girls’ Football Tournament (plus some boys to be gender sensitive) involving 16 Primary Schools in Nairobi and its environs.

This event was held on Saturday, 19th July 2014 at St. Teresa’s Girls School Grounds. Kenyan-Heart plans to make this an Annual Event and will be reaching out to the Counties soon.
