Fondazione Milan and Alice for Children

A home for 24 orphaned children from Nairobi: the Fondazione Milan project with Alice for Children.

IL PROGETTO

In Nairobi a house is being built for 24 orphaned children, money is being spent on the health of the children in the project and the first African football tournament for those living in slums is being launched.

In the Alice Village, one of the new villages in the Alive for Children in Nairobi project, Milan Foundation is building a house for 24 orphaned children that come from the Kenyan capital’s slums. There are 150,000 orphaned children in Nairobi as a result of HIV. Hopefully these children can now start a new life with a smile.
Another important part of the project is medical and health provisions for all the children in the Alice Village and Alice Homes, another of the orphanages organized by Alice for Children in Kariobangi.
In this way Milan Foundation wants to guarantee the children’s medical screening, health insurance and treatment for those affected by the HIV virus.
In addition, Milan Foundation will give life to the first Soccer Slums Championship, a new tournament involving 16 teams consisting of children between 10 and 14 from the slums of Nairobi, Kibera, Korogocho, Kariobangi and Matare. The tournament will end with a final in June.
The tournament will provide an occasion for children from different slums to meet. It will also once again underline the importance we attach to sport and its ability to transcend boundaries and eliminate social problems.
