Kenya Homeless Street Soccer Association
KHSSA was founded in 2003 with the main aim of creating awareness and inventive strategies to positively combat homelessness and poverty through sports, in particular street soccer. The organisation works with socially disadvantaged and homeless youths, using sports as an entry point for social integration.
About 42% of its population live below the poverty line and they are highly vulnerable to environmental, economic, and social crises.
Additionally, Kenya faces humanitarian crisis due to an influx of refugees – there are over 500,000 refugees from Somalia and 30,000 new arrivals from South Sudan (UNICEF).
