I was in Nairobi today, watching the TYSA girls’ soccer team from rural Kenya take on the urban girls team from kibera (one of Nairobi’s biggest slums) that is sponsored by Carolina for Kibera. Both teams receive a bit of funding through GlobalGiving, although GG is not the major sponsor for either one. It’s probably a first ever GG vs GG face off in a tournament.

I’ll probably try to get a little audio or video podcast up later this week on it.
