Short intro

Wale Wale Slum Soka Academy, a football academy in Kibera, started in May 2018 as a joint effort between Wale Wale Kenya and Kibera Slum Soka. Now, four months after a test start, we can happily conclude that so far it has been a success and that the modest goals initially set have now been reached. This document outline the targets that we aim to reach within the next 12 months. By reaching these targets, we will constitute the foundation for further growth of the project and in the long run, that our vision is realized.

Wale Wale Sweden, who currently have part of the financial and administrative responsibility of the project, are represented by a operative group with four members, Emil Moberg, Kalle Svensson, Christian Kubista and Petter Eriksson. The operative team in Kenya are represented by Wale Wale Kenyas Project Manager Vennah Atieno, Head Coach Mousa Otieno, and assistant coaches Mike and Babi.

Target for 12 months

Our ambition is to let the project grow gradually in a pace that also allows a responsive development of the organizations administrative capacity. This means that along with a growing number of players within the project, our leaders should also be nurtured through education in coaching, leadership and project management.

We aim to be an fully gender equal project. A sufficient number of girls should have certain and obvious part in the project. Experience tells us that attracting girls to come to the project and, even more important, stay in it, is a challenging in Kibera. Therefore, extra effort will be put in attracting girls and designing flexible programs in line with the girls daily lives and routines. This also includes working strategic on changing attitudes.
