The SLIDE Project, a collaboration between the Action Network for the Disabled (ANDY) and Laureus Sports for Good, is a pioneering initiative designed to empower deaf young women aged 24-35 in Kibera, Nairobi, Kenya. Combining the transformative power of sports with vocational preparation, the project aims to equip participants with essential skills and opportunities for personal and professional growth.


Sport and Empowerment:

Through tailored football training sessions, the SLIDE Project seeks to promote physical fitness, teamwork, and confidence among deaf young women. By harnessing the positive impact of sports, participants will develop valuable life skills such as discipline, resilience, and leadership.


Digital Literacy and Entrepreneurship:

The project will provide training in digital literacy and entrepreneurship to equip participants with essential 21st-century skills. By imparting knowledge in digital technologies and business fundamentals, the SLIDE Project aims to enhance economic opportunities and empower deaf young women to thrive in the digital age.



The culmination of the SLIDE Project will be marked by a graduation ceremony, celebrating the achievements and milestones of participants. Graduates will be recognized for their dedication, perseverance, and growth throughout the program, inspiring others in their community to pursue their dreams and aspirations.
