Below: an extract from the diary of Mary, Nairobi, Kenya
After the post-election violence in 2007, many youths from Kibera came together to form the “For Jesus”‘ basketball club. Attracting over 60 members, the club meets every day and is proud to keep the former criminals and drug addicts on its team off the streets.
Above: This is Nickline and Robin, both 19. They both live in Kibera, in the 2nd largest urban slum.
Below: Some of the players are in professional and semi-professional teams in Nairobi and have played at national level in high school. Even so, some still come to this club on a regular basis since many of their friends still play here.
