Happy New Year

Our Mission is to give HOPE for a better future. 

During this time of the year, we reflect on the greatest gift of hope; the birth of Jesus our Savior!  Through Jesus, there is hope for our world; hope for even the most vulnerable.  

The Suba Lakers Football Club continues to serve the most vulnerable in the area around Mbita, Kenya.  Our goal is to provide opportunities for girls to develop their God-given talent in football.  Yet our goals go way beyond football.  We desire to see each girl build positive self-esteem, have good character, stay in school and grow spiritually. 

Over the past year we have seen how a little bit of hope has gone a long way...

15 primary, 30 secondary and 7 college students participated in the club's various activities.

9 girls finished primary school; 8th grade.  (In Mbita District, only 43% of girls complete primary school.)

6 girls finished secondary school; 12th grade.  (In Mbita District, only 16% of girls complete secondary school.)

6 primary girls were selected to play at Nationals, and WON, creating history!! (read the story)

2 secondary girls led their school team to qualify for Nationals! (read the story)

It is our prayer that the club will continue to provide hope to these girls.  While developing their football skills and participating in tournaments to gain competition experience, great focus is also placed on each girl continuing their education and finishing secondary school! Read a letter of gratitude written by some of our girls in secondary school.
