SHOOT TO SCORE

Life Skills sessions for boys and girls

Sessions on children's rights, decision making, hygiene and menstruation were delivered over the last few weeks to 455 boys and girls. These sessions were delivered through our football drills.

Leagues

120 participants (60 girls and 60 boys) took part in 18 league matches over the last couple of months. Due to ongoing conflict, some matches could not be played. The leagues were supported by our coaching team. 

Girls had their own matches and were able to play football after training by our coaches. 

Distribution of bibs

100 bibs were purchased for the football matches and life skills sessions. The bibs make it easier for the players to identify each other and they are light and easy to wear. 

Pitch Repairs

We were able to make some repairs on 3 football pitches and facilities that we normally use for our shoot to score activities. The pitches and facilities are accessed by a total of two thousand and twenty-nine children. The repairs included:

  • Field marking.
  • Sport shade renovation.
  • Goal post repainting.
  • Removal of thorns and unwanted weeds in and around the pitches.
  • Repair of 76 changing room windows.


EDUCATING YOUNG GIRLS IN NORTHERN KENYA

This month we conducted monitoring and evaluation on the use of the previously distributed pads. A majority of the girls we spoke with noted that the reusable pads had less friction and were also easy to maintain. 

This month, we plan to distribute new reusable pads to 44 girls, with each girl receiving a set of four pads that will make it easier for them to change during periods.  

Some of the challenges we have recently faced include the cancellation of our tournament plans due to relatively high Covid19 infection rate


 

THANK YOU


We could not have done all this without your support. We ask you to keep supporting and empowering communities here in northern Kenya. 

On behalf of all our communities and everyone on our team, we say a big thank you for your enduring support.
