From Street Child to Street Champion, this is Benson's Story...
Benson had no choice but to leave his family home as a child and went to live on the streets of Mombasa, Kenya. After being arrested simply because he didn't have a home, our partners in Kenya, Glad's House, intervened and supported Benson into education and football programmes.
In 2014 Benson was selected to captain his country at the 2014 Street Child World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil giving a voice to millions of children surviving on the streets today and inspiring them that they fulfil their potential away from the streets.
