Programs

We seek to address the following issues: 1. Lack of awareness as a result of inadequate education in the slums 2. Low incomes with a large majority living on less than one dollar a day. 3. Poor environmental consciousness 4. Inadequate protection of girls' rights 5. Inadequate knowledge and attitude on HIV-AIDS 6. There is lack of skills, and therefore many are incapable of being employed in better jobs. A vast majority provide unskilled labour within city's industries, or in building construction sites in the city The goals adopted at the UN Millenium Summit in 2000 set the global targets to dramatically reduce extreme worldwide poverty in its many dimensions by 2015. These targets represent the basic components of a decent human life - reducing poverty, hunger, disease, exclusion, lack of infrastructure and shelter while promoting gender equality, education, health and environmental sustainability. The full participation of young people in Kenya's society in the future, shall greatly depend on whether they have the necessary training/education, self-confidence as well as physical and psychological well - being. These attributes are often enhanced by participation in sports. This project intends to train the young men and women in the severely deprived community of Kibera, Nairobi (Africa's largest slum) for self-employment, particularly in sports coaching, and provide support through ideas on self-employment and job placement (where available) to jumpstart their careers. Women will receive equal opportunity with men to train. We carry out grassroots and performance training in tennis, soccer, rugby, basketball, swimming, athletics, gym; formal education to poor children; environmental and community leadership, coaches' training for job placement; HIV-AIDS education; girl child empowerment, networking and business training support for local CBOs which will lead to job creation in Kibera.
