Why can’t I be like other children?
I have seen many people suffer in the community where I live. We have no proper hospitals, no clean water and my mother struggles so hard to feed us. I want to work hard in school, become a doctor and help people.
I worked hard in my primary school and achieved 356 marks in the final exams. I wasn’t so happy with my result but I did far much better than kids from rich families who were in nice private boarding schools. My former school is in the middle of a slum called Mukuru wa Ruben in Nairobi and that where I live in one small room with my mother and 4 of my siblings. This small room, we call home, is our bedroom, our sitting room and our kitchen. There is no space for private studies.
We are a registered non-profit organization with a quest to change society through sports; thus the name Sports for Change. We are not professional athletes, but with a lot of passion for the same we have noticed that a noble course can be assisted through sports to awaken society and uplift the lives of the needy.
