Lagos set for maiden Charity Cup tournament

23 July 2015, 20:32

Lagos - Kids in selected orphanage homes across Lagos have finally been given a platform to exhibit their football talents as a Lagos-based Non–Governmental organization have finalized plans to host the maiden K.G.K Caritas Cup tournament.

The K.G.K. Caritas Cup is a charity football tournament, hosted to raise awareness on the need to harmonize children from orphanages with families from mainstream society, in order to inculcate in the orphans a mindset of inclusion, in the general society and harnessing their natural abilities to psychologically give them a sense of being a part of the larger society.

The charity homes that will take part are Hearts of Gold Children’s Hospice, The Lagos state Motherless Babies home, Lekki, Little Saints Orphanage as well as the Arrow of God Orphanage.

The 5-A-side tournament which has been scheduled for the 1st of August at the Legacy Pitch, National Stadium in Lagos will see youths from various localities within the Lagos metropolis involved in novelty matches with different charity homes.

17-year old Kamsi Mojo-Eyes, the organizer of the Charity football tournament has made the betterment of orphans his life's purpose using soccer (The K.G.K Caritas Cup) as his platform with the hope of stimulating substantial public interest toward the Parentless.

This year’s Caritas Cup, being the first edition will be a periodic event that will bond orphanages and charity homes in the country and the world at large, and it remains a seed that must be sown, for the fruits to be of benefits to the parentless and also a platform for the privileged in the society to give back in their own little way.

“It will be a periodic event, which will (by the grace of God), grow to include every orphanage and charity homee in the Country, and perhaps, the world.” Mojo-Eyes assured.
