Joy and excitement filled the air as SambaSports Youth Agenda welcomed back 42 students who are beneficiaries of the English Access Micro-scholarship Program. These students arrived safely following their one week stay in Karen, Nairobi, for a Summer Camp.
Being the first trip for the organization with such a larger number of individuals and outside the Coast region; it has been weighed heavily right from preparation to the final day of travel and back home. Trusted with the task, the teachers and staff held their end of the bargain as everyone is home safe and sound—relief for everyone involved.
The Summer Camp was exciting, educative, and transformative. The students went through experiential learning allowing them to express themselves better in writing and speech. This had a huge impact as some hidden talents were tapped among the students.
The students believe the experience, knowledge and skills acquired from the Summer Camp has inspired them to aspire and hungrier for more. This inspiration will radiate across their peers both at home and school in a multidimensional fashion to subsequently affect more teenagers positively—with the possibility to validate their dreams.
SambaSports Youth Agenda would love to extend sincere gratitude to US Embassy Nairobi for the opportunities presented before the students and to thank Mombasa CBO for organizing the Summer Camp.
