Teaching Disadvantaged Children and Coaching Football in Mombasa, Kenya

 

l had a fantastic time and a great experience. The school placement was excellent and my host family brilliant. I found Njeri a very helpful and sincere person. Nothing was too much trouble for her. On arrival she made me feel at home and at ease. She was always available, and very supportive. I would say that without her l am certain my experience would not have been the same.

My placement and my time in Kenya had a big impact on me and my outlook on life. I was inspired by the children l taught, and the football teams l coached. Although many of the children had very little in the way of possessions, with many doing PE in bare feet, their sheer energy and enthusiasm was a joy to see. I quckly became aware of the potential both within the classroom and on the sports field of many of the children. Sadly though l am not sure how many will fulfill their capabilities.

I found the people l met in Mombasa on the whole were very genuine, friendly and hard working. Many would struggle through life but again always with a smile on their faces.
