The Suba Lakers Football Club provides opportunities for girls in Mbita, Kenya to develop their God-given talents and potential. With one of the highest HIV/AIDS prevalence rates in Africa, Mbita is a difficult place for a young girl to grow up. We use football as a means to impact their lives physically, socially, academically and spiritually.
The senior team is leaving today for Kitale to participate in the Wasichana Tunaweza Tournament (Girls, We are Able). TYSA is hosting the event as they celebrate 10 years of youth football. The morning times will be filled with encouragement for the girls to stay in school and work hard academically to acheive their dreams. Guest speakers will be sharing with them and they will also have time for discussions in large groups and small groups. An ongoing tournament will take place in the afternoons with the finals coming on December 12th. None of us have ever been to Kitale before so we are excited about the opportunity to see a new place.
