Brief About Us.
Dandora is located in the East of Nairobi (Kenya), 11km from the city centre. It has a population of more than 800,000 people, with 65 per cent being youth. The area hosts one of the largest dumpsites in the country. The dumpsite is a health risk to the population in the area. The toxic thick smoke from the site present health risks to the residents with numerous cases of respiratory diseases reported often. In addition, poverty levels in the area is very high with most residents surviving with less than a dollar a day. Others live and scavenge the landfill to earn a living.
Johanna Omolo Foundation offers well rounded environment to develop the future talent and bring hope to the people of Dandora. We believe in providing young footballers both boys and girls with scholarship opportunities. This will enable them continue with their education while pursuing their sporting talent. Our objective is to motivate the children in Dandora to become winners not only in the soccer fields but also score the most important goals in arts, community service and education.

If it was not for Johanna Omolo Foundation I would not have gone to school because school fess was a major obstacle to us after our fathers death
Due to parents unemployment, Chloe came to us with a specific requirement; to help her fund her education. This is a massive ask that we committed to support.
I come from an conducive environment in the shanties and my family was not able to pay my fees but thanks to Johanna I am able to go to school again
With the help of Johanna my son’s education has been smooth and he’s now approaching his final year of secondary school. Honestly have no idea what I could have done .
