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 2012 School Year has come to a close and all of the students throughout Kenya are back in their homes to celebrate Christmas and ring in the New Year. Most of the Suba Lakers are in Mbita training together and preparing for a few holiday tournament. This week they are getting ready for the International Human Rights Tournament in Kisumu December 20-22. After a tough league season, it is good to get all of our best players on the field together again to play against some good competition. Our young girls have learned so much in the past year and have grown tremendously as players, students and even moreso as people.
