To run the clubs, we developed an innovative library system. Local managers rent out sports equipment and games against very affordable rates and use the income for repairs and tournaments. The system is simple and sustainable, and can easily be replicated globally.
In Kalobeyei where we built our first sports club together with NGO's the Lutheran World Federation and Roof for Humanity in 2019, the club now has 8,450 members. Every day hundreds come together at the club to play volleyball, football or a game of chess.

In refugee camps and settlements, NGO’s often provide food, housing, medical care and educational support. But there are no structural solutions for young people to play sports.
What's most needed is equipment, sportswear and playing fields. KLABU appoints fields, builds sturdy club houses and we stock them with all the gear and clothing to play the most popular local sports and games.
We, together with our partner Roof For Humanity, always work with local builders and artisans to make sure the club meets local requirements. It's their club, after all.
