Kit and equipment donated by Arsenal FC helped us bring the communities, and football teams, that live around the forest together and provide us with the platform to educate the local children of the dangers facing the forest and inspire them to champion its future preservation.
The day was a huge success – following a briefing from Sammy, kit was handed out to two of the communities’ local football teams; The Happy Eagles and Kipepeos (butterflies). The teams then took to the field where the Kipepeos won 1-0 in a competitive and tightly contested game!
The remaining kit will be handed out to two further local teams; The Forest Rangers and the Sunday Stars.
As well as the great benefits to local community and environment, the donation will have no doubt created an Arsenal fanbase, in this small corner of Kenya, for years to come!
