Kibera, the largest slum in East Africa, has a history of ethnic tension. Over 600,000 people do not receive basic services such as water, healthcare, education, or sewage disposal. Over 80% of all youth are unemployed, nearly 20% are HIV positive, and the slum has been the source of two violent clashes between ethnic groups over the past ten years. CFK established three core projects to help address these needs in Kibera: a youth sports association, Rye Clinic, and Binti Pamoja Center.


To expand the services of the medical clinic to each of Kibera's eleven villages, and to purchase land for permanent establishment of the Rye Medical Clinic and CFK offices to ensure sustainability.

Long-Term Impact

Outcomes include using sports as a method of promoting community development, AIDS awareness, and ethno-religious cooperation and creating a safe space for youth to develop leadership skills.
