Suba Laker Lilian Awour was invited to join the Kenya National Football Team in late 2016.
Since joining the team, she has traveled all over Africa and the region; including: Botswana, Ethiopia, Uganda, Ghana, Morocco, Cameroon, and Jordan!
She is the primary goal keeper for the Under 20 National Team and currently a back-up keeper for the Women’s National team. As a member of the national team she has received enough funds to not only pay for her own education but to also build her mother a house!
Her best experience so far has been:
"Going to Africa Cup of Nations held in Cameroon with the senior team and seeing the best players in the world! That motivated me so much."
Lilian is gifted with a natural talent, along with good size for a goal keeper. But most of all, it's her willingness to work hard on the field. She has overcome many challenges to get to this point in life.
Even with all the fame and hype around being a part of the national women's football team, she has not forgotten where she came from. She recognizes that it all started with the Suba Lakers and she is grateful to be a part of the Suba Laker family.
We are so proud of her. We hope that her example of perseverance will inspire other young girls to have hope for a better future!
