Helping young people in Nairobi's slums make positive choices through soccer

Growing up in the slums of Nairobi in Kenya is not easy. Community-based-organisation Vijana Amani Pamoja - or VAP - exploits the power of soccer to educate and empower young people from the city’s slums, helping them to make positive and healthy decisions.

Using the sport for development model, VAP tackles issues of HIV/AIDS, female empowerment and anti-corruption across three programs and regular community soccer tournaments. 

Based in the Eastlands area of Nairobi, VAP supports some of the most marginalised boys and girls in Kenya.
