Jersey 2 Africa 4 Football Foundation Presentation

  1. 1. Improving young lives in Africa through football www.jersey2africa4football.org
  2. 2. Little did I imagine that some two years later, I would have coached over 300 young players, not only in basic football techniques but also life skills, giving encouragement and inspiration to them all. I was humbled by their desire and passion to learn and to improve their lives, despite their deprived conditions and hardship. Ricky Weir, Founder The Inspiration… “Hey Ricky, go on coach us!....” shouted a young lad in bare feet, when I turned up with a bag of footballs and some second hand kit to give away, in one of the most deprived slum areas of Kenya. www.jersey2africa4football.org
  3. 3. Our Game Plan… Working in one of the worst slums in Kenya, over 300 young people have benefited since J2A was founded in 2013. We have provided equipment, boots and kit, coaching, mentoring and a pathway to playing, including transport to matches. To us, football is about more than playing a game. It is about empowering young people to better themselves and to step away from the terrible living conditions and the daily temptation of drugs, prostitution and crime, to which many of them often succumb. We use football as a tool to develop life skills, including hard work and perseverance, belief, commitment, discipline, team spirit, communication and a sense of community, and the role these play in achieving life goals. Our Foundation’s aim is to continue supporting the Nairobi slums football community in specific ways to aid their football development and growth. www.jersey2africa4football.org Local boys proudly show us their homemade football, made from plastic bags and string

  10. 10. John Njunguna U17 Captain and midfielder “I can personally say that the arrival of Ricky in Nairobi was like a God sent miracle in my life. I had dropped out of school in Class 7 due to lack of money to pay school fees. When Ricky first visited our community in 2012 no professional coach had ever visited our slum and I attended every session every day to either take part or to learn something new just by watching this new coach who turned up it seemed like from nowhere. Little did I know that it was to be the opening of a lifetime opportunity for me personally. I am now in Form 2 and enjoying being in one of the best schools I could ever have dreamed of and working hard to gain the best possible grades as well as improve my English so I may better speak with Ricky on his next visit to see us. I always thank God for Ricky’s efforts and dedication to me who feels like a father to me.” Personal sponsorship… There are many more children like John that we would like to support www.jersey2africa4football.org
  11. 11. Jared’s lost dream... One of our players, Jared “Bathez” Omae, is a highly talented goalkeeper who was considered to have the potential to reach international level. Unfortunately he lost the opportunity to fulfil his dream of becoming a professional footballer, simply because neither he nor his club could afford the regular travel costs of attending training and matches. To read Jared’s full story visit www.jersey2africa4football.org/about/press www.jersey2africa4football.org
  12. 12. “Lots of appreciation for the great opportunity I have been offered to prove my talent in football with Mukuru Combine and the support of Jersey 2 Africa 4 Football. I thank personally Ricky for the great training and coaching and even offering me his personal cap to help me in the sun glare when we went for a match in Umoja a kind gesture I will never forget in my life. It was a great experience practising what he had trained us for more than a week and he was very cheerful always instructing me positively when he noticed a weakness. I really miss his instructions and guidance and never forget his wisdom and advice as a coach. The one thing I learnt and continue to remember and practice up to date is that ‘a goalkeeper is also a player’. I really hope to receive more advice and training from Ricky very soon, please come back quickly!” Will George be the next Jared? George Wandhala U12 Captain and goalkeeper www.jersey2africa4football.org
