Talanta Hela is not without its challenges.

One of the major challenges is funding. The project will a significant amount of financial resources to sustain.

The CS for Youth Affairs, Sports and Arts are confident enough. With support from the government and private partnerships, this project will flourish.

Another challenge is the lack of infrastructure and resources in some parts of the country. Kenya is still a developing country with very minimal infrastructure like sports academies that could spearhead this project.
