AYiERA iNiTiATiVE is a Community Based Organisation registered by the Government of Kenya. We are a charitable Sports for Development Organisation and are non-profit, non-political and non-religious.
The AYiERA iNiTiATiVE was founded in 2007 in Korogocho slum, Nairobi, Kenya.
The founder himself, Hamilton Ayiera Nyanga, was born and raised here.
Korogocho – which is part of the capital of Nairobi – is one of the biggest slums. Around 200,000 people are living here. Our goal is to improve the lives of children and young people. With our team we try hard to help and support the children of Korogocho.
With sports we are trying to get those back on track who have lost connection to families and friends. We are trying to convince those who are insecure to join our mixed football teams and fight – peacefully.
We offer daily support and ongoing caring for the young people in our neighborhood through education and talent development.
Within the AYiERA iNiTiATiVE Children and Youth Empowerment and Development Centre we offer school classes, psychological support, drama classes as well as musical creativity.
