The Thunder Football Academy

Football is universal and is enjoyed worldwide by all ages. Kawangware is no exception and The Thunder Football Academy is going from strength to strength, with some very talented young footballers.

The Thunder Foundation fund two football coaches every evening to coach 150 Nairobi street children who have no homes. This not only gives the children something to look forward to and focus on but it keeps them off the streets at times when they are most vulnerable, helping to keep them away from prostitution, drug addiction and alcoholism. The evening football also provides and encourages positive social interaction.

The Thunder Foundation provides coaching, transport, food and a full kit to all players.
