Use soccer as a tool to educate 2500 Kibera youths



Kibera Mpira Mtaani is using soccer to reach out to the youths in Kibera slums. Through soccer tournaments and after-school tuition they are educating youths in lifeskills and academic subjects.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Kibera is one of the world’s largest slums where families live hand to mouth. Parents spend little time with their children who are often left loitering & uneducated on lifeskills. 60% of children attend informal schools suffering from lack of resources & unqualified teachers, impacting the standard of education. According to Chairman Vincent, Kibera Mpira Mtaani addresses these issues as they use education and sports to create “well rounded young people who can change the future for Kibera”.

How will this project solve this problem?

KMM offers children a safe place to do homework with tuition to add to what they learn in school. Volunteer teachers offer an environment where children feel comfortable asking questions and the centre also provides syllabus textbooks which are a vital resource for students who attend non-government schools. By assisting with education, KMM has shown it can help improve the grades of the children who use the centre, giving them a higher chance of being offered a place at a good secondary school.

Potential Long Term Impact

The library has 500+ students registered who should achieve higher grades & go further in life. In 2010 around 30 students were assisted to get scholarships for secondary education, improving their chances of employment later in life. Health education reduces spread of HIV & teenage pregnancy while soccer tournaments offer a focus for youths in holidays, reducing crime in the community.
