Challenge

With the political instability in Kenya's neighbouring countries, an influx of refugees in Kakuma and Dadaab has been causing a myriad of all manner of troubles among the youths in the camps. These misfortunes range from crime, prostitution, drug abuse, rape cases, defilements, early pregnancy and in extreme cases, infant disposal where some survive and a good number die in very deplorable environments. Sports Aid Africa is therefore geared towards rehabilitating these group through sports.

Solution

One of the most effective tool to address behavior change among the children and youth is sports. We at Sports Aid Africa we endeavour to empower vulnerable communities within the framework of education, peace-building, community integration, poverty reduction, sports management, injury prevention, and whole-life coaching training programs. The above programs more often capture the attention of the said children and youth keeping them away from the vices by keeping them preoccupied.

Long-Term Impact

Sports Aid Africa will help the youth in these refugee camps and the host community to cultivate their character and contribute to the world through sports programs. We hope to nurture the gifts of these Children and youth to impart values that serve them and the world. Through our programs we hope lives will be saved, education will be achieved, good parenthood will be inculcated, and create safe environment for everyone.
