Ambassadors Football Training Center - Nairobi

Ambassadors Football Africa

Project Description

We have had $10,000 come into our Kenya account through a local partner! Our new goal is $40,000 for this project to be completed. We are expanding our football facility from 2 5-aside turf fields with another 7-aside pitch! Would you consider helping us bring this facility to completion? We are planning to install the turf in June/July and want to start preparing the ground asap! Football is an incredible tool and if executed properly can change the lives of children. In September 2018 we first opened two turf fields on the roof of a local church and for a little over a year enjoyed a glimpse of something beautiful. Boys and girls from the surrounding communities had access to safe playing grounds with caring coaches, men from the community found friendships and a safe place to play in the evenings, the youth had an avenue to showcase and improve their skills, and coaches found a place to grow as father-figure coaches reaching other parts of the city and the country. During the holidays, we used the fields to run football camps and especially focused on empowering and impacting the girls from the nearby slum who are prone to early teenage pregnancies. In the one year that the fields were in operation, we reached out to 17,704 children, youth, adults, and corporate partners through tournaments, training sessions, community outreach, and holiday camps. At the facility we are seeing how we can impact the local community by modelling football ministry, we can impact a country by mobilising coaches to be father figures on their fields, and we an impact a region by multiplying our efforts through strategic partnerships with churches and other organisations! We have seen the impact the fields can have in the lives of many who encountered the love of God through the game of football. We long to see that developed even further … and you can help. Our plan is to move the two 5-aside fields to the ground and adding a 7-aside field (60mx30m) next to it. Would you join us in bringing hope to this city, country, and region? Your donation helps to develop this facility in order to create a safe place for people to come together to play, learn, and love. Every dollar will go toward the development of facilities which are beacons of hope in the community. Ambassadors globally is helping provide the turf and ship it over, and our local partners are working closely with us to make the costs as low as possible through opening connections and also contributing to the completion of this project. If you cannot give would you please pray for us as we seek to connect people to Jesus through football and see this facility as a strategic launching point for this vision to be achieved. Thank you!
