You'll also find us at the football pitch next to the chief's camp (behind Prestige) on Fri pm for our informal schools tournament finals. Kibera Mpira Mtaani are based in the biogas tower in Katwekera. Vincent's the chairman and they work with coaches from all villages. A thought - Vincent worked with chairman of informal schools to organise tournament. Might be a good contact if you want to map schools??
