Education, Joy of Movement and Friendship
Young Champs is a foundation with the purpose of giving less privileged youths a new opportunity in life. We are currently in the start up face of opening a runner academy at the foot of Ngong Hills in Nairobi.
The project initially aims to provide 16 youths, in the ages between 13 and 18, a chance to attend an educational program free of charge at the secondary school Kenswed academy (www.globalrelations.nu). This also includes food, housing and training under the supervision of world elite runner Isaac Macharia. The goal is to implement the core values of: friendship, joy of movement and curiosity within the frame of education and sports. The 4 years at Young Champs Academy will create opportunities for overall changes in life.
IN THE FUTURE
We aim to launch this project in Ethiopia during year 2017 in cooperation with Global Relations and Kenenisa Bekele. We are also trying to launch this project in Sweden, actively working to find new partners and local ambassadors.
