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.

Primary School Games
The Homa Bay County team mainly consisted of Suba Lakers from Mbita District reached all the way to the finals of the Provencal Tournament and played a great game against the host county Kisumu. With all of the fans against us, our girls dominated the game and created numerous chances to score, but never broke through. In the end, it came down to penalty kicks which gave Kisumu the title.
Fortunately, 6 players from our team were selected to go to Nationals, including 4 Suba Lakers. Goalkeeper Lillian Awuor will go for the first time, Winny Akinyi and Teresa Atieno will be going for the 2nd time and defender Lavenda Achieng will go for the 3rd time. It is a huge honor to be regarded as one of the best primary school players in the nation. We wish them the best of luck as they represent the Lake Region in the games set to take place next week.
