Ready to Join?

Hi everyone,

My name is Martina, I'm volunteering for a non-profit organization Mama Africa Pendo, and we have decided to organize a fundraising event for the education of kids in Mathare in a way that it's fun for us as well as kids and all the people who want to join.

Therefore, we came up with the idea of organizing a soccer tournament for 5 schools in Mathare, who will send Protected content to play matches. However, to make this event a fun event for everyone, we came up with a bunch of other activities that will be run during the event, so that other people can also have fun.

So what can you expect?

Exciting matches, extra fun activities, sports-motivated kids, and the possibility to support kids living in the second biggest slum in Kenya, Mathare! That's what our first BIG charitable football tournament "Goal For Education" is going to be all about!

We will have 5 schools from Mathare (Mama Africa Pendo + Golden Bells, NECI School, Klaus School, St. James School, and Abundant Life School) participating in 4 different age categories:

- Boys U12
- Girls U12
- Boys U10
- Girls U10

But guess what, it's not going to be just about football! We are preparing a lot of fun activities for everyone. You can expect:

- Music & DJ
- Raffle / Tombola
- Talent Show
- Food & Drinks
- Pictures by photographers
- Food Tasting Game
- Other various fun competitions for visitors
- Face Painting
- Possibility to buy handmade products from local women
- And much more!

Why Are We Organizing This Event?

"Can you take us to the World Cup?" That is what school kids asked us recently. Kids in Mathare were hearing about the World Cup all the time, but have never had the chance to see even just one match as they have no access to a TV. Therefore, we want to give them the opportunity to participate in their own little #Mathare Cup!

The main goal (besides having a bunch of fun) is to raise money to pay school fees for as many kids in Mathare as possible. These kids are motivated bright students who want to pursue their careers and YOU can help us get them one step closer to their dreams by joining this event.

Ticket prices are:
- Protected content / kid
- Protected content / adult
- Protected content / 1 ticket for you + one ticket for a kid from Mathare

You can buy your ticket in various ways:

1) Directly from our salespeople by contacting us and arranging a pick-up place for your ticket.
