The football fever has been high and we expect nothing less with the World Cup games and their surprising outcomes. However, for us our football fever has another reason.
Football has been a part of our education program for a long time because we believe that allowing our children to express themselves in sports and nurture their talents is one way of raising holistic children. Last year, the girls’ team was born and we brought on board a female coach who has not only been helpful in training but has also been a friend who has allowed the girls to open up about many issues facing them.
In the last two months, the girls have played in four tournaments and have performed exceptionally well. In one of the biggest tournaments that brought together 17 primary schools in Kibera, the team managed to take the second position and the best female player!!
We are truly proud of our students and we believe that the investment you enable us to put in the sports program will greatly impact these young minds and remind them that they have the ability to achieve great things!
