Boniface, 14 years old from Kisumu, Kenya.
Boniface loves to play football but it has been a challenge to play due to the lack of equipment, especially uniforms and balls. Now the school has 2 trained coaches and new equipment and since then the trainings are more organized and more enjoyable. “I enjoy new methods of training, the new uniforms and other training equipment. We compete amongst ourselves during interclass competitions.” It is not only about football, they learn life skills that help them to become stronger and be more regularly present at school.
“We have learnt about recognizing safe water and food hygiene. Now, I want also my family to have safe water and knowledge about hygiene, just as much as I want to score goals”. Boniface is strong and fast and therefore responsible for making the goals in his team.
