Right to Play Safe
There are many resources that are hard to come by, for example football, football shoes, playing grounds, playing time, expertise and qualified (role models) coaches to mentor the young people among others.
Football is part of our program within the 3 pillars of Inspiration, Connectivity and Education (ICE). We run small football clinics and annual tournament in Mathare North for the youth of the ages 14yrs and above.
We have our senior and junior team that we support called Mathare North Rangers F.C. The most challenging is getting the resources as mentioned above. We have tried as we can to keep the spirit of the game going, but sometimes it is hard to use only one ball for about the two teams and in this case you will find the young once been denied the chance to play because the seniors always take the priority.
The football shoes campaign is still on and will call on individual, organizations, sports federation etc; to join hands with us in providing the necessary resources for young people in disadvantages communities who have the passion to play.
