Sport is an important tool that helps create positive social changes for individuals and communities around the world. Activity and play create joy and harmony in everyday life. For children and young people living in poverty, play is highly valued and contributes to making an active difference in their lives.
Sport motivates learning and increases the possibility of getting out of poverty. Our sporting director Paul Nyang'owo Otieno himself grew up in the slums of Nairobi. Sport helped lead him out of extreme poverty and into the professional sports leader and researcher he is today.
Together we are working to collect funds for the construction of our sports centre. Where we will develop programs that promote children's right to activity, play and learning.
Paul Nyang'owo Otieno is responsible for the development of our sports center and leads our sports-based programs that will be developed in the near future. He has 7 years of higher education and 18 years of international work experience. He is a renowned researcher and strategic sports manager with extensive experience in poverty and development work, using sport as a tool.
He is a full-time researcher and sports director at Kenyatta University in Nairobi. In addition, he is a coach for the UN football team in Nairobi and a part-time strategic developer for humanitarian organizations.
