We need your help today!
Due to inflation and supply chain issues, food prices have DOUBLED in Kenya over the last year. KGSA is committed to providing a healthy lunch to 130 girls every school day this year. For some KGSA girls, it's their only meal of the day. For $20 a month, YOU can can ensure one KGSA girl receives a healthy lunch every school day.
Thank-you for partnering with us to raise $25,000 this summer for KGSA's school lunch program!
Together we can do it!
44% of girls in Kenya don't finish high school.
The Kibera Girls Soccer Academy (KGSA) provides a free, holistic secondary school education to 130 girls annually in Kibera, Nairobi – the largest informal settlement in Africa.
KGSA’s model cares for the whole girl - academics, extra-curricular activities, nutrition, healthcare, mentorship programs, college scholarships and a new dormitory that opened in July of 2021. KGSA unlocks potential, expands opportunities, and enables each girl with the ability to shape her future. Research shows that girls who earn a secondary education earn twice as much and women with higher education earn up to three times as much as their peers with no education.
KGSA was founded originally as a soccer club for girls in 2002 by Kiberan resident Abdul Kassim who recognized the unique challenges that girls faced in his community. Over the years KGSA has grown from a soccer club to a one room classroom with 13 girls to a multi-faceted school. To date KGSA has graduated over 370 girls including 70 who have pursued higher education. Our vision is to harness the power of the #girleffect to create a stronger, more resilient Kibera.
