Thanks to the hard work of Elizabeth Ngaruiya, teacher at Father Henry Carr, Get’em in Gear was fortunate enough to team up with the Mathare Foundation of Nairobi, Kenya in the summer of 2016. The Foundation was established to help disadvantaged children nurture their talents and engage in productive initiatives. Its purpose is to train and create opportunities for children and youth in photography, performing arts and football and enhance their leadership skills. It is this focus on football as a catalyst for change in the lives of these young people that led Get’em in Gear to donate kits to the Mathare Foundation. It is our hope that this partnership can continue in the years to come.
