Wednesday, 9 June 2010


Football team (KitAid, RAF's Taking Football to Africa and beyond and the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation) spent the day at SAIDA Children's Home, Gil Gil, about one and a half hours north of Nairobi, donating football kit and cuddly toys from Ipswich Town FC.
The home is run by Jane Kinuthia and opened in April 2004. It houses 52 children, most of whom are abandoned or abused children. Saida means ‘help’ in Swahili.  There's a small nursery at the home and its also houses primary and secondary children. The home also runs two outreach programmes in Gilgil including a feeding programme for 76 children and a 'Granny Club' which relies on older ladies providing shelter and support for young children. The project looks after around 300 children and is self sufficient relying on charitable donations.
