We support this project remotely with resources and training their leader Omar Ciru, who is using soccer to disciple children of this community.
The problem in this area is that children aspire to study up to 6th grade at most (in the best of cases), and after that they look for a job in palm harvesting, driving motorcycle taxis or boats, etc. All this due to the limited development opportunities in a community where you can only get there by boat. Another product of these circumstances is that there is a high teen pregnancy rate. Omar’s mission is to use soccer as a means of discipleship for men and women to show them the irresistible love of Christ, and based on a personal encounter with Him they can make the best decisions for their lives.
