In Memoriam Peter Serry
Kenya’s football fraternity, the Kenyan Coaches, the leaders and youths that Peter Serry worked with at the Mathare Youth Sports Association (MYSA), the Kenya Premier League, his recently formed Football for Peace Foundation and a huge circle of International organizations have lost a good Friend and remarkable person, who spent most of his life helping, others.
I have known the late Peter Serry for a long time and we worked together through MYSA between 1987-2008 in organizing young boys and girls who live in Mathare slums to use their sports talents constructively and profitably. Peter Serry has also been trained as a Football instructor by the Royal Netherlands Football Association (KNVB).
He was at the forefront of developing young soccer talents in Kenya and on many occasions travelled around the globe to share his experience from Dutch Coaching, Youth and Community Development with coaches in many countries from Suriname in the Caribbean to Vietnam and India in Asia.
We invite Kenyans and friends of Peter around the globe to use this page to send their condolences to honor our good friend Peter Serry for all the Good he did to our community and around the world.
MAY GOD REST HIM IN PEACE
