Since 2003 we have mentored young women to be active leaders in their local community. 30 young women play in the Samba team and some volunteer as coaches to train school children.
Our school leavers programme sees that young girls become role models within their local communities. We have 3 paid staff to provide young girls the support needed for positive transition into adulthood.
Since 2006 we have been funding the Sunderland Samba Girls Soccer team in Kibera, our funding provides school books, pens, pencils and other art materials, meals and sanitary products for the school. On our trips we organise and run workshops in the local communities discussing and working on subjects like peace and equality; we also provide football coaching to the children of different areas.
