Kenya

Glad’s House works with children and young people from the streets and within the community of Mombasa, Kenya. They engage with these children and young people in a number of ways but use sport extensively, particularly football.

Through their various sport programmes, they offer children and young people practical and emotional support. Their coaches and social workers work together to identify those in need of this support.

Their first priority is always to try to reunite these children and young people with their families. Where this is not possible social workers and teachers work to place the children in foster homes and return them to full-time education. For those young people unable to return to full time education, Glad’s House provides training and the opportunity to join an ‘enterprise scheme’, giving these young people a skill they can take through life. They also provide supervised accommodation, as well as access to informal education.
