Kick Papua New Guinea

Kick Kent has recently been out to Papua New Guinea

Keir spent a week in Port Moresby which is renowned for its violence and crime, and ran Academy where 60 young people came from the townships, to learn Football and hear more about Jesus ! The project was funded by Kick Kent and North Kent Community Church!

After spending a week in the capital, he flew out to the jungle with Ken Kenamu from the Cieda project who has been trying to develop this remote part of Papua New Guinea for the last 9 years!

After a long journey to get to Pori village, they were warmly welcomed by the locals. Keir spent the next two weeks training the teachers how to teach the sport and implement life skills and a bible story, to help develop the children physically and emotionally!

For many of children it was the first time they had played football! The trip finished with a tournament, three of the local schools attended, along with the chiefs of each local village! At the end, each School received footballs, equipment and Kick Kent T-shirts. Keir said some highlights were receiving a chicken as a thank you present and going hunting!

We now have our first Kick Papua New Guinea Teacher called Fogo, who will be continuing the scheme.
