SHARING THE POWER AND JOY OF SPORTS
Join the KLABU to unlock the power and joy of
sports for those who need it most.

"We speak many different languages in the camp, but the language of sports is one we all share." - Nancy (20) from South Sudan

Conditions in refugee camps around the world are often extremely difficult, but young people like Nancy and Emile refuse to give in to despair and waste their lives. In the Kalobeyei Settlement in Kenya, and many other camps globally, they are building a new home, going to school, and starting small businesses.

These resilient young people are preparing for a better future. Either returning to their own country when it’s safe or resettling in a new country.

Playing sports brings joy and structure to their life and they give it their all - whether they are coaching a football team or studying to become a doctor. When you join the KLABU, you are directly empowering young refugees to play sports and rebuild their lives in places like Kalobeyei, and supporting our mission of unlocking the power and joy of sports in more refugee camps around the world.

Meet Emile (27)

In Burundi, Emile played in the 1st division of the National Basketball League and was on his way to becoming a doctor. “My dream is to play in the NBA. Or to be a doctor. But mainly, I want to be a basketball player.” He has all the moves, hits one 3-pointer after the other on the new basketball court near the KLABU Clubhouse. “The level is not what I was used to, but I’m helping the team get better.”
