BENEFITING: American Refugee Committee

EVENT: World Refugee Day 5k

EVENT DATE: Jun 20, 2017

THE STORY:

Hello, I’m Songa Bahati. I came to Nakivale settlement in 2015 from Congo. In Nakivale – other than religion – I believe futbol is the only thing that can bring people together. That’s why some friends and I came up with the idea for Nakifutbol Academy, which we started just 4 weeks ago.  

It’s especially for teenage boys who don’t go to school and don’t have a chance to learn about things like alcohol and sexually transmitted infections. At Nakifut, we get together to play futbol, be active together and build community. But we also talk about different health topics like the dangers of sexual vagrancy and past traumas some of us have experienced.  

On World Refugee Day, I’ll be running with Nakifut in hopes that others will support us. We need shoes, uniforms and balls for playing futbol. But we also need resources to train our members in computer skills, languages, and important health messages.
