Bring Hope To Kibagare Slum

Our mission is to help the Kibagare slum overcome through sports.

In the Kibagare Slum, home to over 20,000 people, football (soccer) is something that draws the whole community together. Every weekend, football (soccer) fans gather around the Kibagare Bamboo Stadium to support their local players and take their mind off of their reality for just a little while.

Reality in Kibagare Slum

The slum of Kibagare, Kenya, is located on the outskirts of Nairobi and is home to over 20,000 people without clean water or sanitation systems. The slum originated with former plantation workers who lost their livelihoods in 1972 and has grown to 20,000 people in a tiny strip of land hemmed in on all sides.


The level of poverty experienced by families in Kibagare is immense. With such hardships and little employment, the rate of substance abuse, crime, and prostitution is high.


“Life in the slum is not easy, and it's even worse for children. The lack of even the most basic needs - shelter, food, healthcare, security and education. The children of Kibagare have limited access to any of these. Economically, the community here thrives on casual labor and employment. With Covid, many people who had employment have lost their jobs. Throughout the slum, we face the challenges of substance abuse, child neglect, and dire poverty.”


Hope to the Slum

At the heart of Kibagare lies the Bamboo Stadium, a beacon of hope where poverty, and destitution are all around. This field is home to the Kibagare FC, where over 200 athletes train and compete everyday.


Due to the fact that the athletes and their families cannot afford proper football (soccer) equipment and gear; Our goal is to raise enough money to provide them with all they need to compete at the highest level. This includes,:

  • Cleats

  • Socks

  • Shin guard

  • Balls

  • Ball bags

  • Small goals

  • Shorts

  • Jerseys

  • Cones

  • bags


But our ultimate goal in the future is to be able to turn the Kibagare FC into a full functioning organization with access to resources, and also convert their dirt field into a legitimate football like stadium made of turf with seats for the fans to enjoy!

Played soccer with these kids and realized they had no cleats.

Returned the next day with shoes, jerseys, shorts, socks, shin guards & balls.
