Mainstream Academy är vårt biståndsprojekt i kenya dit vi bland annat samlade in 30 000kr tidigare iår genom NBC loppisrally. Kadiri Galgalo är ansvarig för projektet och nu håller man på att sammanställa ett skolprojekt i slumområdet i kawangware som är ett av Nairobis största slumområden. Vi tar en liten frågestund med Kadiri
Hello Kadiri you are woorking with mainstream academy in naerobi. Tell us a little about the project?
-Mainstream sports academy is a child centered community based organisation it's located in the slums of kawangware in Nairobi Kenya it was started in August 2009 by former and current premier league players with the aim of helping children and youths live a positive life away from drugs, alcohol, crime and radicalisation also we saw many youths dying because of crime and so we saw it as one way for behavioral change and communication.
What is your background?
-I have played in virtualy every league in Kenya from Division 2 to premier league I stopped playing active football in 2009 and decided to give back to my community I have played for Thika UNITED, sofapaka FC,kangemi UNITED,kawangware SC and last but not least World Hope FC.
How did you come in contact with Gottne IF
-There is a friend of mine called Taylor clay Moses who told me about Mats and I sent him a friend request when he was still playing actively for Gottne IF and that's where I started following them a few seasons back.
What is the aim with the project?
-The main focus at the moment is Mainstream Education Center which was made possible by Gottne IF and NBC we have so many children who don't go to school and we hope to open our doors in January 2018 to offer them a Quality,affordable and an all round education platform so that when they grow up it will help them become responsible citizens of the world
At last do you follow Gottne IF
-Yes I do I follow them because I learn alot from their proffesionalism in the way they conduct themselves from the advertisement of the matches to the technical and tactical approach and with Michael and the rest of the Kenyan players we have to follow them and know how they are doing both on and off the pitch I also follow the refugee team and also the futsal I bet I follow everything concerning Gottne IF and lastly we love playing in the green uniform donated to us it's our lucky uniform whenever we wear it we always win THANKS ALOT for everything.
