In addition to our agriculture and youth football programs, we also participate in other projects in the football for development community. We collaborate with others as well as host events. This page lists some of the projects we have been involved with.

Soccer Tournaments and Collaborations

To promote community development, the SEP organizes regular football/soccer tournaments and collaborations with others, both in Kenya and abroad.  The Cambridge participants raise money to support these efforts.  For example:

Football for Hope – Adidas Exchange Program

This programme provides organisations active in the field of social change through football with a unique opportunity: to exchange and develop the expertise and capacities they need to deliver their programmes effectively by learning from peers and other experts. It consists of two main elements: a Coerver Coaching seminar providing football coaches with an advanced train-the-trainer course, and capacity development workshops which allow organisations to share best practice through peer-to-peer learning.

Football for Hope Forum 2009

Over 140 experts in the field of social change through football came together at the first Football for Hope Forum in Vanderbiljpark, South Africa in June 2009 to share ideas and discuss the future of the field. Representatives from streetfootballworld network members and other grassroot organisations joined experts from the corporate and academic sectors in workshops, training sessions and talks on various topics in development through football. Sessions focused on the role of football in areas such as leadership, education, gender equality, HIV/AIDS prevention and peacebuilding.

Third Annual Kampala Youth Festival

This year’s theme was “I Have a Dream…” and we encouraged all of our participants to dream big, set goals, and take action to achieve those goals. We had amazing energy and effort from all of our local staff, as well as our five volunteers from the United States.

WASH World Cup

A team of streetfootballworld and WASH United representatives travelled over 1400 km from Nairobi, Kenya to Kigali Rwanda. Why? To check out the spots for this year’s WASH World Cup, and to prepare host organisations for their WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) events!

Cleats for Kenya

An initiative organized in Cambridge.  American soccer players often have several pairs of cleats/boots and Kenyan soccer players may have none at all.  We collect used cleats and other soccer gear to send to the SEP as a way to support the teams.

Female Empowerment through Football

An SEP project focused on incorporating life skills training into SEP’s girls soccer league. The goal of Female Empowerment Through Football is to train girls in leadership skills, inspire them to use football for overcoming challenges experienced by women in their local community, and create clubs where girls feel comfortable openly discussing personal issues and seeking advice from one another.

The training educates girls on their basic human rights and equips them with knowledge and self esteem that enables them to make healthy choices, empowering them at home and in their future relationships. In addition, the project works to connect the girls to their peers in the East Coast of the United States.
