In a recent post (10 Days in the Kenyan Sun) we shared about Global Sports’ most recent project in Kenya. As a part of this project, AIA partnered with Kenya’s top professional woman golfer (Rose) to host 50 teen girls from Soweto Academy at a local church outside of Nairobi near the Kibera slum. It was a day filled with girl-centered fun and messages from several speakers, including a local pastor (Steve) who challenged them to grow and become all they could through a relationship with the Lord and to trust Him for their dreams. Steve grew up in Kibera. He encouraged the girls to say “Yes, a lot of good can come
from Kibera.” This may have been the first time they heard about how much God loves them. It was also the first time all but six of these girls had ventured outside the Kibera slum.
A portion of the team also visited Uganda in order to plan and meet with their basketball federation to prepare for another project in August involving a women’s basketball tour.
Thanks for your partnership with AIA Global Sports!
