Kakuma Starlets United (Kakuma, Kenya)

The Starlets represent and work on behalf of their local community which has been the site of the sprawling Kakuma refugee camp since its establishment in 1991-92. The team includes South Sudanese players who have lived a decade or more as refugees in Kenya, in addition to local players who grew up in the Turkana region. Together, they work to promote women’s football as a peaceful point of connection between different groups living in Kakuma, promoting educational opportunities and peaceful conflict resolution.
