Imani Orphan Care Foundation
We visited the Imani Orphan Care Foundation home to donate soccer balls and clothing to the home, and had a wonderful day touring the facility and playing with the kids. They had dormitories, kitchens, learning areas, and a small garden at the time. Kim Lee is the Founder Director, and has an amazing team in Kenya helping the children thrive.
Orphanages in Kenya
In Kenya, the situation of Orphans and Vulnerable Children is a big challenge. Currently it is estimated that there are over three million Orphans in the country, with 47% orphaned as a result of HIV and AIDS and many more remain vulnerable due to several other factors.
Our team brought suitcases full of soccer balls and uniforms to donate to schools and communities for a few reasons. 1. Soccer is a huge sport in Kenya, loved by all kids. 2. The quality of the soccer balls in Kenya is very poor, and they fall apart easily. It was fun to not only donate, but also play soccer with the kids.
You can see the difference between the new soccer ball that the middle child is holding, and the old soccer ball that the child on the right was holding. Big difference!
We have donated 50+ soccer balls in Kenya. Playing soccer can also keep the boys focused when they are out of school so they stay out of trouble.
100 Humanitarians International is looking for donations to help fund soccer clubs for youth in Kenya, to help them learn teamwork and stay focused on their goals.
100 Humanitarians International hopes to fundraise $1000 each year to go to soccer balls and jerseys for boys in Kenya. If you would like to help contribute, or sponsor a club, donate below. We will also contribute soccer balls to Imani Orphan Care Foundation, to thank them for allowing us to visit and see their facilities. 100% of your donation goes to the equipment!
