To us times may seem tough, with the economy being what it is, but imagine for a moment the prospect of a childhood spent living in a corrugated tin shack, with nothing to eat, no running water or electricity or plumbing with families rent apart by disease, poverty, crime and an unemplyment rate that can exceed 70%. Crime is a natural by-product, a daily reality. Help us change that!
This is the environment in which the Philippi Angels strive to break the cycle. Coach Nyameko sees things differently: “If there were no kids playing baseball here right now, you would see a lot of gangsters in this place. You cannot rob if you are playing a sport.”
