From 15 - 18 July 2013, Girl Power Clubs Africa and Sadili Oval Sports Academy, jointly hosted three professionals from Coaches Across Continents, an international non-profit that gives technical football support to organizations that seek to make social change in their communities. Boys and Coaches of Football trained in the morning and girls each afternoon. 67 members of Girl Power Clubs Africa from Malezi Primary, Malezi High, St Michael's Holy Unity, Nazarene Primary, and Olympic High - a great mix!
Girls learnt some good drills to warm up for soccer, and valuable technical skills to improve their game. They covered really interesting life skills through football, such as how to save money, cleanliness and how to prevent getting infected with HIV and Goal Program insets. Training sessions were followed up with a regular Girl Power session so that the girls could learn some extra facts and have a chance to ask any questions they have, in a "safe space".
Sessions on Monday to Wednesday were held at Sadili Oval, with the Thursday afternoon session held at the oval at Olympic High in Kibera. To see some more of the pictures, visit out facebook page:www.facebook.com/wanjikugirlpower.kenya
