My full name is George Omondi. I am the head of education department at AYiERA iNiTiATiVE. I’m 24 years old, born and raised in Korogocho slums here in Nairobi – and still living here.

I joined AYiERA iNiTiATiVE as a volunteer since its inception back way 2007. My reason to join the initiative was I had passion to change and transform our poor slum through sports. 

I have also the passion in social work and particularly working with children and youths and seeing their lives changing.

AYiERA iNiTiATiVE

AYiERA iNiTiATiVE is a Community Based Organisation (CBO). It was established with the main aim of positively transforming poor communities (Korogocho slum and its environs) and to improve the lives of the less privileged children and youths of Korogocho slum by using sports specifically slum footie – a small football game initiated by Ayiera Initiative, as a tool to achieve the above mentioned aims; sport in this case being used as catalyst for positive social change and development. The organization also empowers disadvantaged children of Korogocho slum and its environs by engaging them in academic, sports and art programs and activities.
