Nature and Sports Training Camps

UNEP and the Global Sports Alliance (GSA) launched a Nature and Sports Training Camp in Nairobi in August 2001. The camp provides leadership training on the environment, culture and sports to children from the biggest slum in Kenya (Kibera). Since 2001, over 10,000 children have been involved in basic training on the development of community environmental activities (recycling, clean ups, etc) and on various sports activities (soccer, tennis, basketball, etc).

Through the Michezo programme, UNEP intends to create similar camps in other developing countries. UNEP will also continue to support the Mathare Youth Sports Association, a winner of UNEP’s Global 500 award in 1992, which is another programme for slum children in Nairobi.
