Sports Program

Football

Flame has 5 Football teams, with 60+ participants who compete in a local competition.  

Sport allows us to share our hearts and lives with the teenagers in an informal setting and it means that we can make deep connections with the teenagers outside of the slums and its many social issues. 

If you ask a teenager if they want to come study
they will say no but ask them to come play football and they say where and when!

Sport provides a physical outlet while at the same time giving regular time spent with our staff and volunteers. Every coaching time and game time begins with a “huddle” where the volunteers share their own life stories and listen to the issues that the teenagers are facing.
