The last 3 years has seen a very special relationship develop with some particular boys within the community; affectionately know as the ‘slum football team’. These boys train at least four times a week and play at the weekend, they love playing football and show considerable talent.
Through the donations of Norwich City FC we have managed to equip them with plenty of playing and training kit. We have also helped them with some basic supplies to progress a league or two. Every time a team heads out to Kenya, visiting these boys is one of the first items on the itinerary. Usually we come loaded with kit and various other bits and often spend time helping them train as much as we can.
Many of the team have since come into schools with us to help coach the children and some have found an even greater hope in Jesus and got themselves involved in the local church.
Over the next few years we intend to continue to work with this team, support and coach them and grow the relationship we have with them.
