Film and photos from Mbale Tigers

Mbale Tigers Table Tennis Club in Mbale, Uganda,
is crowded by enthusiastic youth. The club has a
deeper goal: to cover school fees through win-
nings, to nourish the mind in a place away from
poverty-related problems, and to build confidence
in the village children.

Amina Kibone, Aisha Nambozo and Moses Pharao are three of them. Their talents have brought free school tuition and a higher standard of living. The main goal is to start up a table tennis academy in Bududa area outside Mbale, where players shall be given education and training for free. Today 2000 players have a chance to play freely. It's a cooperation between Mbale Tigers and the Swedish NGO called Twiga.
