FC 2020 has grown from a handful of children to 40+ members and
We are just about seeing the last of this...
Since FC 2020 children cannot afford personal uniforms, the mentors purchased used uniforms for them to share during practice and competitions.
Once the donated shipment reaches the members, there will be no more sharing of uniforms and every child will have a pair of cleats!
Thank you Georgia Soccer, Faction and all the young soccer players who donated!!

FC 2020 ready to get into the soccer field for the first competion this year. Their uniforms are mismatched and some of the children could not find a shoe size in the team uniform collection and therefore had to play in sandles or formal leather shoes.

SPLENDORS OF AFRICA, GEORGIA SOCCER, FACTION, FAMILY & FRIENDS
Splendors of Africa adopted FC 2020, a Soccer Team serving disadvantaged children between the ages of 5-18 years old in Karatina, a rural town in Kenya. The focus is to provide uniforms for the team and training for the mentors so they can better serve the children. It is our desire to help provide nutritional meals during practice as most of the children may not have eaten any food prior to the team meetings, practice and even during competitions.

Georgia Soccer Made a Difference by Donating Uniforms
Donation Day at Red Hare in Marietta with Georgia Soccer & Faction.
Georgia Soccer & Faction organized a donation drive at Red Hare in Marietta, Georgia for Splendors of Africa. A great number of soccer uniforms, cleats and balls were donated. The donations will make a difference in the lives of FC 2020 and other youth football teams in rural Kenya.
