The dormitory was inaugurated today! 🥳 Come on in to tour this beautiful boarding facility that will provide a safe and stable learning environment to girls in Kibera. Congrats Kibera Girls Soccer Academy staff, alumnae and students. We are so proud and can’t wait to see it in person.
The furniture for the dormitory is starting to arrive. Thanks to everyone who’s donated so far. To date we’ve raised $23,505 of our $30,000 goal to prepare the finishing touches before the first 40 girls move in at the end of the month. There’s still time to donate - link in the comments.
The girls are taking their 3rd term final exams. Due to the pandemic, the 2020 school year is just now finishing. The 2021 school year starts at the end of July when the new dormitory opens. Best of luck girls - we believe in you! Thanks KGSA teachers for all your hard work this school year. #finalexams #educategirls #allthebestgirls #girleffect
Meet Aisha Ali, a form four student who was selected as a STF Youth Ambassador for the first ever cohort of She's the First Youth Ambassadors! Aisha’s voice will be used to educate and advocate for girls' rights via video content, media interviews, and speaking opportunities at events. Congrats Aisha - we’re so proud of you!
Once they move into the dormitory, the girls won't have to wait in line for water and haul it back to their homes. Every day they'll have access to clean, safe water allowing them to spend time studying instead of doing household chores. We've raised $21,130 so far! Help us reach our goal of $30,000, so we can finish the final touches on the dormitory and welcome the girls at the end of July.
