In 2007, the Rift Valley municipality organized a football tournament for women in the region. Football literally galvanized the youth and fostered teamwork, inspiring Rafiki Ya Maisha to organize more tournaments in 2010 and 2011.

The tournament was a turning point for the community and a great opportunity to advertise the village polytechnic. Two youth representatives came forward to fill seats on the Board of Rafiki Ya Maisha and 28 new students signed up for training courses.
