Dorcas Nanyonga

Dorcas joined the Premier Skills course in 2021, and she is now coaching 20 boys and 30 girls at YES Academy in the Busia district at the border with Kenya.

Border areas are known for having many young people dropping out of school and engaging themselves in illegal activities such as smuggling goods across the border at an early age.

Dorcas’ initiatives support young people to participate in community football training and football festivals.

With the coaching skills gained from the Premier Skills training. The girls love the game and they are empowered to follow in my footsteps. I am now a role model for many young girls in the Kisenya community of Busia district bordering Uganda and Kenya. We have returned over 15 girls back to school using our football programme.
