A project managed by Kibera Black Stars
Overcrowding, poor hygiene, pollution, high unemployment, limited access to decent education, high rates of alcohol and drug abuse – the living conditions in Kibera, Kenya’s largest slum, are extremely tough.
Despite this difficult context, the Kibera Black Stars football team is a real model of success for the slum’s residents. The club is growing and pursuing its ascent towards the Kenyan top-flight but needs a headquarters in order to be able to stay in the second tier of the league. The Kibera Black Stars are taking advantage of the construction of their headquarters to provide multipurpose spaces for children (access to education), women (workshops) and residents (social, cultural and leisure activities).
- Use sport as a vehicle for social inclusion
- Support education in a difficult environment
- Establish income-generating activities for the slum’s residents
- Give young people a sense of responsibility and keep them away from bad influences

- Construction of a multipurpose structure (sport and leisure)

- Sewing activities for the women of Kibera
- Local library and toy library, internet cafes
