Sabina Gicuku, Leonard Okoyo – Young Achievers

Date grant awarded: March 1, 2019

As a result of rising crime rates among youth in the Korogocho slum of Nairobi, Kenya, Sabina Gicuku and Leonard Okoyo started Young Achievers in 2012. This project works with youth under the age of 17 years with the goal of engaging them in healthy activities that allow them to be a good example in the community and beyond. Sabina and Leonard use the popular sport of football to carry out life skills trainings. Funds from The Pollination Project will help purchase new equipment, uniforms, transport, and writing materials to the beneficiaries.
