The Lornah Kiplagat Sports Academy focuses specifically on girls from Kenya, because today’s girls are tomorrow’s mothers. They will pass onto their children what they have learned now, enabling the next generation to grow up with a new and stronger mindset. A mindset that will make for a better future. 70% of the girls selected for the Academy are currently living in underprivileged circumstances.
Without the Academy they will probably never have the opportunity to study after high school. 30% of the students will be regular paying students who have the talent, the skills and the ambition to pursue an international career.
