East Africa Character Development Trust

The East Africa Character Development Trust‘s ground-breaking youth development programme in Kenya uses cricket as a powerful vehicle by which to develop the character traits essential for long-term success.
EACDT’s programme tackles the lack of ‘soft skills’ development within the educational system in Kenya, targeting children from Nairobi’s slum communities who are born into poverty and seldom ever alleviate themselves from its grasp and who are at most risk of being disenfranchised from their own society. EACDT aspires to help young people by developing their social and character-led capabilities. As a result, they should be better able to manage the extreme challenges of slum life and to support their advancement through education and employment, and ultimately, to elevate themselves from their historic deprivations.
