Football in Kenya

Our partner are helping adolescent girls break the silence on issues that affect them through a network of peers who share information on life skills and create a safe space for girls to learn from each other.

NGO description

Our partner seeks to change lives and livelihoods of pastoralist communities in Northern Kenya!
They have different programs and initiatives :

Breaking The Silence

Also known as Breaking The Silence Using Football, this program has been implemented since the beginning of 2013. With the support of Women Win, the NGO have been able to to reach 13 schools in Marsabit Central. They are helping adolescent girls break the silence on issues that affect them through a network of peers who share information on life skills and create a safe space for girls to learn from each other.

Girls who would ordinarily not be involved in sport activities now find a safe space to play football and learn from their network of peers.

Community Resilience

This program’s objective is to enhance community resilience through capacity building, enhanced preparedness and also reducing their vulnerability to disasters in Marsabit.

This is being achieved through increased community capacity to access resources and utilising them through community saving schemes, alternative livelihood methods through tailoring course, improved community cohesion and peaceful coexistence through football, and enhanced access to information and knowledge through the documentation and setting up of a resource centre.

Shoot To Score

The name says it all. The NGO teach young children to learn to shoot with footballs and not with guns.

Since 2008 and supported by various partners, the flagship program has helped prevent young children from being sucked into ethnic rivalry and conflict and provided safe spaces for learning a culture of non violence through football.
