Auma Obama Foundation Sauti Kuu – Alego Nyangoma, Siaya County, Kenya
The Auma Obama Foundation Sauti Kuu (Sauti Kuu) is a non-profit organization that was established in Kenya in 2010 and registered in Germany in 2011. The foundation is led and inspired by Dr. Auma Obama, who has extensive experience working with NGOs and young people in Africa and throughout the world. Sauti Kuu (“powerful voices” in Kiswahili) works with disadvantaged young people, particularly those in rural areas, to help them and their families utilize locally available resources to improve their living conditions. Sauti Kuu is working to reverse one of the most economically destructive migrations in our time: rural-urban migration.

As part of its infrastructure development program, Sauti Kuu is building a Sport, Resource and Vocational Training Center in Alego Nyangoma, Siaya County, in Western Kenya. The aim is to create a safe and secure physical space for young people from rural areas to meet and interact regularly, while participating in sports and learning activities. The center will offer basketball, boxing, football, volleyball and netball.
SNP is delighted to support the Sauti Kuu Foundation in setting up the sports center, as providing the children with new sports facilities is important to us.
