The Nature and Sport Training Camps (GSA Dream Camps) is a program that provides professional coaching and environmental education to children living in slum areas around Nairobi, Kenya. GSA supports the camps that try to give a 'sporting chance' and promote leadership skills among the decision makers of tomorrow.
GSA has collected sport equipment with the kind cooperation of sporting manufacturers and sport clubs, as well as gathering used sports gear from individuals through the recycle boxes provided by IGFY Corporation.
Some of the tennis rackets were also purchased by the GSA Corporate sponsor, the Tennis Support Center, in order to help pay for the shipping costs.
