Kick it with Kenya is a program that uses soccer and sports as a platform to educate youth on how to live a healthier lifestyles.  It is focused on bringing vital public health resources and education to youth and their communities in rural Kenya.  

Throughout a week-long conference, youth will be encouraged to attend lessons on subjects such as HIV/AIDs, malaria, communicable diseases, sanitation, nutrition and more.  The curriculum is  focused on learning outside of the classroom, taking lessons outdoors and on the fields.

During the week the youth also are encouraged to participate in a soccer tournament.  Leadership and coaches training is also provided.  Thousands of spectators gather at each game from surrounding communities to watch and support the event!
