‘Back Pack Campaign’:Oduor spreads smile to the Less Privileged
Five time CECAFA Handball all time star and celebrated 2015 Africa DK awards Runners up Brian Mathews Oduor has established a foundation dubbed ‘Life for the Lifeless ‘ to support those living in undeserved community.
“The foundation focuses on improving the quality of life for the underprivileged and disadvantaged children as well as to improve on the less fortunate to be more than what their current surroundings and circumstances allow then to be” said Oduor.
Through his campaign, he is raising funds for children in schools and at the moment has 56 children from Makutano, Kapenguria and Kitale as some of the beneficiaries. He is yet to visit Kaloleni and Makongeni in Eastlands Nairobi later this Month.
He aims at supporting the children’s education by buying the text books, Exercise books, pens, pencils, sharpeners, Mathematical sets, and spring files among other school materials.
The Children have been divided in to four categories including, 14 kids in class 1-3 each in need of 1400 shillings per kid, class 4-5 each in need of 1600 shillings each and 6-8 each in need of 1800 shillings. Among them are 23 girls who need to be provided with sanitary towels worth.
Oduor left the country for Denmark where he joined Mors Thy handball team and has proven to be a force to reckon with in the Danish League. Prior to that he led Mozambique and Congo’s National teams to the All Africa games (AAF).
“Supporting the needy reminds me of the days growing up which makes me want to brighten a child’s future.”
“I know what it is like to attend classes without good learning materials. And so I am doing this for the kids because I understand how it is”.
“Giving a helping hand to our brothers and sisters no matter how small is all that matters not necessarily money but any how you can is all that matters”.
Oduor is still in pursuit of a new deal with him holding talks with clubs including Norway, Denmark and Germany.
