Monica is a class 6 student at Undugu primary school whom despite not being an active and a good footballer in her school, has managed to capitalize and utilize the power of football to learn various life skills through participating in football based activities coiled with anti-corruption prevention messages. “I had no idea of playing football, neither did I have information about corruption but through the project and its simple football based activities, I have gained confidence and started to play football and learnt more on how to become a great leader with great skills and integrity. “Said Monica.

Over 200 students both boys and girls from Mathare slums were enrolled to the show corruption ‘Red card’ program. The program that commenced in the month March has been conducted three times in a week. The implementers of the program who are dubbed as Anti-corruption crusaders have been teaching participants on various issues including integrity and leadership through various soccer games.
Since the inception of the show corruption ‘Red card’ program, the participating students have been actively involved in all the sessions that do require active participation. With every participant having a great ambition for his/her future life, the issue of integrity has been a critical topic to discuss and think about. During the first day, all participants were given some surveys to fill to gauge their knowledge about corruption and their attitude and its results. With corruption being a major issue in our societies today, every participant was quite aware of its consequences.

“Corruption has been a great enemy towards achieving any development and for any society to move forward in terms of development, we should all unite and say ‘NO’ to corruption. I like this program that uses football to teach about the dangers of corruption.” Said 15 year old Vincent.
