Our partner, Carolina for Kibera, an international non-profit working to alleviate poverty, develop leaders, and catalyze positive change in Kibera, Kenya, one of the world’s largest slums, is asking for your help in this week’s action campaign. They are launching a new fundraising campaign to help finish up post-production on Without a Fight a documentary featuring CFK’s Sports Association.
Without a Fight follows youth from diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds as they prepare to compete in the final championship game of the season, organized by the community-led non-profit Carolina for Kibera. In order to play, teams must include players from each of Kibera’s five ethnic tribes. Despite a long history of violent conflict between these tribes, every soccer match manages to end without a fight. The teamwork and mutual respect needed to bridge Kibera’s ethnic divides start on the soccer field.
Carolina for Kibera is inviting supporters of the film to join their honorary crew. Crew members and a “crew position” of their choice will be listed in the final credit roll of the film. More importantly, funds raised from Without a Fight film screenings and DVD sales will be used to support the Carolina for Kibera soccer tournaments that are making such a difference in the lives of Kibera’s youth.
All donations are tax-deductible, and when crew members register before March 4, our donors will automatically match their donations – up to $10,000!
