Hawks FC - "Kits2Kenya" Project.

Hawks FC is a grassroots football club and registered UK charity based in Kettering, UK.

We are excited to be launching our Kits2Kenya project.

This as a Legacy project based on one of our core values of “Leaving our Shirt in a better place”.

In 2018 we were fortunate to meet Emmanuel Pala who was spending a year studying English and playing football in the UK. He got to know us well at Hawks and helped us during his period in the UK. We have remained good friends with us ever since. He returned to Kenya in 2020 where he continued his football career in his home of Nairobi.

For some time, we have been considering a legacy charitable football project in a place that supports children that is in urgent need of help. We were aware of the challenges in Nairobi and together began the search for a partner club that would support our aims and be a good fit for Hawks.

We have decided to start our project by supporting “Maroon Talented” which is a youth-based football project based in the Kibera / Lang’ata area of Nairobi run by a group of community volunteers led by Issa Gunabe.

Kibera itself is the largest urban slum in Africa, and the third largest in the world. The average resident lives of less than $2 a day. Unemployment rates high and 12% of the population are living with HIV. Many of the 500,000 people lack basic services like electricity, medical care, and clean running water.

For children football provides a vital safe haven and a vital lifeline. Issa and his support team help youngsters ages 6-17 and help educate the youngsters. Resources and funds are scarce so Hawks will be helping provide kit to the youngsters and will be initially shipping 60kg from our old stocks.

We are interested in working with other clubs in the Uk and in Kenya to develop this work. We need help with shipping / logistics partners to assist with the wider development of the project.

Hawks is initially committing £600 of match cash funds to the project as well as the kit and equipment we are shipping in the first consignment.

We are launching a fundraiser to help develop the project further to send a further 60kg of" Kit2Kenya" . The funds will support ongoing transport costs which are around £10 per kg of kit. Funds will be held securely for the project and ringfenced.

You can donate to the Hawks "Kit2Kenya Project" on our fundraising page or website : hawksfc.co.uk

Thanks for your interest.
