Here's a brief film focusing on one of the graduates from the East Africa Character Development Trust (@eacdt), which is one of the projects we support in Kenya. We are proud to have supported up to 80 children through this amazing programme so far, and this is just the beginning!
Stephen was a problem child without doubt, when EACDT first met him. He attended Primary School and was always flouting with trouble, both in school and out - as the film highlights.
He took to the Character Through Cricket programme immediately and we witnessed a rapid and fundamental change in Stephen, as he assimilated the character coaching and also fell in love with cricket as a game.
Today, Stephen is a volunteer with the programme but also independently in his community. He plays cricket for Kenya Kongonis CC and whilst his life remains challenging in all sorts of ways, he has the strength of will to resist resorting to criminality and is a shining beacon of what character education can provide to young people; he makes us very proud!
We hope you enjoy the film, produced by @leakey Studios at no cost to the charity.
