Just heard from Michael in Naivasha and been updated with the emails that have been flying back and forth between Kenya and Leeds, UK where 2 sports teachers are trying to push Michaels fantastic football academy project forward, prior to their arrival in Kenya for the Summer Programme.

We have an urgent need for the following, to be purchased cheaply in Kenya, so if you have any connections with sporting establishments or even with the Beckham World, please let us know. Prior to the FIFA World Cup next year in South Africa any involvement will be worthwhile.

Footballs (size 4 and 5) and bibs, field markers, first aid kits and
tactical boards are all needed for several centres where training will
be provided by Michaels “Academy” around Naivasha and Gilgil. Andrew
and Philip will be spending a month to assist Michael, attending
training sessions with the local “Homegrown FC”, a nationwide league
club based just south of Lake Naivasha.
