We are very thankful to our friends and Global Giving donors who made a contribution towards the Kellogg Foundation competition. Though we did not emerge winners we were able to raise more than $1000 towards the Mrembo program. Through your generous contribution we were able to organize a girls soccer clinic for ours girls team in Kiambui slums in preparation to an International soccer clinic to be held in April. We also intend to hold a girls workshop targeting more than 50 girls from Kiambui,Kinyago and Majengo slums as we launch our revised curriculum. The curriculum is a series of soccer activities each with a topic and reproductive health messages. Sexual Assault, Early pregnancy and marriages, Sex and Relationships, HIV are some of the topics addressed. On a sad note, we lost our girls captain Judith Auma in a fire tragedy that claimed more than 100 lives. May her soul rest in peace. Your contribution counts and through it we are able to reach and transform lives of many girls in Majengo, Kiambui and Kinyago slums.Tunashukuru!(We are grateful). We appreciate your comments on our progress reports.
