Taekwondo Session


Insecurity in Kibera and the risk of assault and sexual harassment makes it more dif cult for girls to be able to gather and meet in public spaces, whereas young men and boys commonly spend their days at “bases” scattered throughout the slum. Our girls’ empowerment club, named by the girls themselves, provides Kibera girls with a safe space to meet, socialize, discuss and learn about topics that are relevant to improving their mental, emotional and physical well-being. Two years ago, some of the girls started participating in taekwondo lessons. Benefits of participating in taekwondo include improved discipline, confidence, focus and concentration, and leadership. Most importantly, it allows the girls to fully realize their own power and inner strength.

This donation will cover the cost of one taekowndo session for girls clubs members.
