Girl's Tennis Lessons

The Binti Pamoja program has partnered with the Zion Zone Tennis Foundation of Nairobi to teach tennis fundamentals to a group of girls from Kibera. The collaborative project seeks to address the plight of girls in Kibera slums, providing structured activities when the girls would otherwise be idle. Currently serving 15 girls, the program will eventually reach around 60 girls between the ages of 11 and 18. Along with tennis coaching from a professional player, the program educates the slum girls on HIV and AIDs and promotes positive self esteem with mentoring and counseling. The program includes weekly tennis coaching and HIV awareness classes, as well as visits from local women's sports personalities. Tournaments are held once a month.
