Baba Diana & The Kibera School for Girls
Baba Diana (Baba means 'father of' in Kiswahili) is unwavering in his belief that his daughter's education will lead to a better life. Every morning he walks her to school, where she joins her smiling classmates. Here at the Kibera School For Girls, the brightest and most at-risk girls are given the power of hope and education.
Twice a week, dozens of girls gather in a large room to share, support, learn, dance and just be teenagers. Led by 21 year old, Emily, who has lived in Kibera her entire life, they are the Shining Girls for Kibera.
“These children need to play football.” Over the past six years, Coaches' youth football program has flourished, helping kids stay out of trouble by providing a community for them to learn and play.
