GSM has joined with the Soccer Queens and their coach Amos Kimani to provide advanced coaching with Godly principles. GSM is also financial aid to help the Soccer Queens become self-supporting through farming. Global Soccer Ministries International’s goal is to incorporate coaching courses for all area coaches and develop a GSM Academy in Kenya in the near future.
The Soccer Queens started in November 2010 with the goal of empowering young women through sports. Their dream is to inspire change in young African women by promoting human rights and reducing poverty while having fun in the process. The Soccer Queens located is in the heart of the Dagoretti District of Nairobi, Africa.
The team helps community girls stay motivated to attend school and further their education while playing soccer. A majority of the players come from difficult backgrounds, making them particularly vulnerable to the daily dangers posed by poverty, unemployment, and lack of parental care. The amazing part about the Soccer Queens squad is that it is a place where the girls can be themselves when they feel like they have nowhere else to go.
