Double Club back in Schools

Introduction of Double Club in Kiragu Waichahi and Gituamba secondary school at the begining of school year in January 2014,was a real boost to these schools given the fact that they are located in slum areas and they’re both informal schools.Additionally,the schools lack enough qualified teachers due to finacial constraints that would allow them to pay teachers good salaries.

Teachings from Double Club booklets provide them with an additional lessons of learning english literacy as well as football skills.The Double Club teachers/coaches play a double role of being english teachers and football coaches which is an added advantage to these schools.”We are so excited of the Double Club program because it suppliments English lessons and football coaching.For our school to have these services,we would be required to hire people and pay them alot of money,so having Double Club program is a great gift.”Said Mr. John Arama,principal of Gituamba High School.


“My English literacy is improving in an environment that is full of fun,i like Double Club because it also provides me with football skills and the teachers are great.”Said Stephen Mwema a student from Kiragu Waichahi primary school.
