The objective of Union Star Foundation e. V. is the organization and implementation of projects to support democratic and humanist values through sport and training. We believe that being a common ground for both those who play and those who watch, sport is a powerful tool to get in touch with other people, create and empower communities, promote gender equality, build social integration and inclusion, or help children to fulfil their potential.
The "Aikido for Peace" (known also as "Aiki Mundus") project was conceived in 2013 and had inspired us to start Union Star Foundation. Dozens of trainings were provided for children and adults during these years. Here, you can assist us in delivering the Aikido values of harmony, spiritual strength, and peace to Kenya and realize our plans to spread the message to other East African countries.
One of our goals for 2022 is to continue our support for the „Aikido for Peace” project in Kenya. For 5750 EUR we will pay for:
- a series of workshops for Aikido instructors in Nyeri, Karatina, Baricho, and Nairobi accompanied with trainings for the Students.
- aikido workshops in schools, i.a. St Linda Academy, Nairobi University, Sagana All Saints Girls High School
- a workshop for kids in Neema Children's Home.
- purchasing of training mats for dojo in Nyeri.
The workshops and trainings are planned for February - April 2022. They will be supervised and performed by a 6 Dan Shihan Aikido instructor recognized by Aikikai Foundation Aikido World Headquarters - Piotr Borowski.
If you are able, we’d love it if you could make a donation of 10 Euro to help us achieve our mission and help promote peace, gender equality, and social change through empowering the Aikido community in Kenya. With regular donations, you will be helping us to plan ahead and ensure that our work not only continues but thrives into the future.
