Girls Empowerment

By a female, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of Girls empowerment It was five years ago when a man who is kind hearted, thoughtfull and selfless by the name Abdul Kassim tried to change the life of Girls in Kibera. He did that by starting a football club which would help the girls whoknew soccer but are not recognized in the society. He later sat down and thought that the girls need education other than knowing who they are and what talents they have. He and some of his friends built a school in Kibera situated near the railway line a place commonly known as darajani. They named it kibera Girls Soccer Academy. It doesn’t mean that only soccer players are in the school but also girls who can’t afford to pay for high school fees and have scored higher marks. Not only do they provide high school education but also further studies if a girl scores c+ and above. And also some Job connections if you are through with your education. This has been advantageous to most girls who have been learning I kibera Girls Soccer Academy.(K.G.S.A) For now most girls are being empowered and they have the potential to do anything that boys can do.Even if some people don’t want to accept if the truth is that ‘’ you can’t resist change but you can influence it’’ for sure Mr.Abdul is one in a million to me and he is my role model.
