He runs a social venture that borders children talent development, education equality enhancement and community empowerment.

Through football, Kennedy has given a unique opportunity to underprivileged children by modelling their character, keeping them grounded on social ethos and facilitating their basic education programs. The football team has marked zero cases of teenage pregnancy coupled with improved enrolment rates and individual child’s performance improvement. This initiative is impacting the fortunes of the hosting community and is proving to be a good model framework for replication across the country.
