We are Green-Kenya Family!
A family that believes in the future of the children.
Green-Kenya is a sport for development organization. We are the leaders in Sport for development in Climate action working in challenging environment in Africa..
We believe in participatory education; by exposing children to open discussion and requesting their input, we are teaching them that their opinions are important. By posing questions on unexplored topics, we are setting the seeds for critical thinking.
Regular exercise stimulates brain cell growth increasing the connection between brain cells which improves memory and attention. Exercise in children helps them focus better in school, retain more information, and build self-confidence. Sport unites people across gender, race, religion, and socioeconomic backgrounds. It is an educational tool which fosters cognitive development; teaches social behavior; and helps to integrate communities; sport has the power to transform lives.
Our organization is two-tiered, our primary focus is to bring positive change to the youth through football themed activities, our programs are offered for free to schools and children.
Our second tier involves offering our expertise in Sport for Development to corporate clients. A 10% fee is added to each package, which goes back into the Green-Kenya’s school programs and Sports for social impact consultancy where we build the capacity of local coaches and youth leaders to become role models who can direct the path of young people under their care through self-directed learning.
