Football Fever!

The football fever has been high and we expect nothing less with the World Cup games and their surprising outcomes. However, for us our football fever has another reason.

Football has been a part of our education program for a long time because we believe that allowing our children to express themselves in sports and nurture their talents is one way of raising holistic children. Last year, the girls’ team was born and we brought on board a female coach who has not only been helpful in training but has also been a friend who has allowed the girls to open up about many issues facing them.

In the last two months, the girls have played in four tournaments and have performed exceptionally well. In one of the biggest tournaments that brought together 17 primary schools in Kibera, the team managed to take the second position and the best female player!!

We are truly proud of our students and we believe that the investment you enable us to put in the sports program will greatly impact these young minds and remind them that they have the ability to achieve great things!

Beyond the students.

Kevin at work
Kevin at work

In the traditional African society, men were not meant to be found in the kitchen, but Kevin is evidence enough that this tradition has faded over time and men are embracing roles their grandfathers would not have dreamt of.

Kevin is a member of our kitchen staff and has been part of us for a couple of years now. Initially, he only came to help the staff in cooking ugali. Ugali is a staple in many Kenyan homes and it's a mixture of maize meal and hot water. Mixing this combination till it hardens is no mean feat especially when it's for 100 or more people and it needs the kind of strength Kevin brings on board. This year Kevin became a permanent member of the kitchen staff and now helps with other duties apart from his main speciality of cooking ugali for the 140 students at Fountain of Hope Primary School.

What's so special about Kevin? Kevin is not only a member of the kitchen staff but a father to one of our students. His income supports his family and his daughter has the priviledge to see his father put in the work. 

This is just one example of how your support for the feeding programme goes beyond encouraging the students to attend school and pay attention in class but it also benefits a number of households represented by the feeding programme staff and the students.

You are our Super Hero!

One of our happy well fed students

Super heroes have special powers that make the lives of others better and during the April Holiday clubs, our friends from Colour My World, took time to teach our children on the sustainable development goals and how they can be super/service heroes by contributing to the development of their community and the nation.

Did you know that you are our super hero? Let’s show you how

1.Contribution to Goal 2 : Zero Hunger

When you give towards our feeding program you not only help us address mild cases of malnutrition but you play a part in ensuring that 170 children from poor households have access to safe, nutritious and sufficient food during the entire school year.

2.Contribution to Goal 4: Quality Education

One of the objectives of our feeding programme is to encourage school enrolment and attendance. This means that as the children attend school they are able to access free, equitable and quality primary education and this increases their chances to transition to secondary, tertiary and/ or vocational training. Ultimately, this contributes to increasing the number of youth in Kibera with relevant skills for financial success.

3.Contribution to Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth

As an organisation we ensure that all our produce and ingredients are sourced from small businesses within Kibera and by doing so we contribute to the economy of these households and the community.

These are just some of the ways you contribute to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals and that makes you our Super Hero!!
