Use soccer as a tool to educate 2500 Kibera youths

In Their Words...

Kibera Mpira Mtaani continues to go from strength to strength in terms of education and soccer. GlobalGiving has been collecting stories from the local community about a wide variety of organisations and events. Below you can find links to some of the 54 stories that have been written about Mpira Mtaani by people in the community of Kibera. Rather than us tell you what's going on and the impact it's having....we thought it best to hear it in their words



We are also trying to give children and youths in Kibera a stronger voice. A creative writing class takes place every Sunday at Kibera Mpira Mtaani to help children express themselves. Another organisation is in the process of setting up classes where children will be trained how to used computers and how to blog so that they can share stories of what is happening within their community.

As well as these activities, the daily after-school tuition program continues to grow and proves itself to be invaluable to the children in the local area around Kibera Mpira Mtaani's resource centre.

Thank you to everyone who has supported this project through GlobalGiving. Together we can help make a difference to the lives of children in Kibera.
