In the Kiandutu slums in Thika, Kenya, 70% of the population lack basic human rights including access to education, while 90% live well below the poverty line.

 

Angaza, meaning “light” in Swahili, offers hope to the young people of Thika through the power of football. Young people and children are brought together to play football while at the same time participating in education programmes - the digital learning centre provides young people with access to animation, photography, filming, a community e-library, computer training, soft skills, micro enterprise and exchange programmes. Girls’ empowerment also forms an integral part of Angaza’s work with forums and the “Go Sisters” event, while its community outreach initiative aims to raise awareness on issues such as substance abuse, crime and conflict resolution techniques.

“I joined Angaza in 2011 through my local football team Mavitu FC, when I joined Angaza I was in primary school and played in Angaza community football league for two years. Its through my participation in angaza activities that I got scholarship opportunity to continue with my secondary education, the scholarship was a life changing opportunity for me for I am an orphan and I could not afford to pay form my education. Today I have already finished my secondary education and now I am a football coach training Angaza teams. Through this journey I have learned alot of life skills and I improved my knowledge areas in life and football coaching"
