The university students have over the years been involved in charity work and missions around the world with visits to under privileged communities.

Also on their diary is a visit to Murang’a where they will engage themselves in jigger eradication projects alongside Ahadi Kenya Trust further to the various sports clinics and missions scheduled for the teams.

Last year the team was a great blessing to several sportsmen in Kenya as they brought with them a variety of donated sports equipment and kit most of which are donated to under privileged communities especially in the slums.

The team will be jetting in on Monday 17th May 2010 and team comprises of soccer players, basketball players, volleyball players, health workers and missionaries.
