Following our last news article, Juliet Auma Andibo, Alive & Kicking Kenya stitcher, has returned home a champion from the Homeless World Cup that took place in Paris from August 21st to August 28th, 2011.
Juliet, who is 22 years old, has five brothers and is the second oldest in her family. As her mother and father passed away early in her life, Juliet and her eldest brother are the only two breadwinners for the family. With her salary from Alive & Kicking she is supporting her three younger brothers so they can finish high school. Juliet has been an Alive & Kicking Kenya employee since November 2009, helping to make the enterprise a success through her hard work (when not playing football that is).
Her great performance in the World Cup included scoring the first goal of the Woman’s final. Kenya succeeded in winning the competition, beating Mexico 4-3 in the final.
Juliet has returned to Kenya after having showcased to the world Kenya’s brilliant football abilities and the huge potential of women’s football in the country.
Congratulations to Juliet and the Kenyan Champions of the Paris 2011 Women’s Homeless World Cup!
