Welcome Team Kenya

Posted on the 6th December 2012

Kenya have joined the Road to Rio 2014. The team from Mombasa are part of Glad’s House, a charity working with street children through education and safe reintergration.

Glad’s House has a history of using football to enrich the lives of street children, helping them leave street life behind. They have worked with thousands of street children in Kenya, providing lasting ways for kids to turn their lives around through enterprise and schooling. The ultimate goal where possible is reuniting children with their families and reintegrating them into society.

Cliff Ferguson, Chairman of the charity, said:

“Being part of the Street Child World Cup is fantastic for us – we hope to use this opportunity to change people’s perception of street children and to show how they can be reintegrated into society. We’re delighted to be involved and can’t wait to get started with training sessions.”

Street Child World Cup Teams Coordinator Karin Joseph said:

“Glad’s House is already using the power of sport to change the perception of street children in Kenyan society. This team will become a symbol for street children in Kenya to reach their potential away from the streets.”
