Team Amani for the Win

They Shoot… They Score… 

Not only do our students hit their goals in the classroom, they’re pretty nifty with scoring them on the pitch! 

Did you know that Amani has its very own football team? This past month, the Amani kids played two matches against Team Maasai and another local military team.

The match against Team Maasai was very important for our kids due to their historic rivalry. With great pride, Team Amani was able to control the game! We scored a two-goal victory against Team Maasai’s one goal. Way to go!!! 

The second match against the military team proved to be more challenging for Team Amani. Although we managed to control the first half of the game with two goals, the situation changed during the second half, where we lost by four goals to the other team. Despite the defeat, our team displayed great maturity and sportsmanship. We look forward to learning from this experience and improving for the future!

It is no secret that our children love football. However, we currently lack enough sports equipment such as footballs, shoes, and cones in order to effectively play and practice. We humbly urge anyone who is no longer using their supplies to donate it to the children of Amani.

This kind gesture would ensure that our kids will always have something to play with on the pitch and give us the best chance to take the victory in the upcoming re-match.

Team Amani for the win!!!
