Maximilla, 13 years: 'One day we were sent home to collect school fees. When I reached home my mother told me that she did not have money and suggested that I should go to Mombasa to work as a house maid to get the required money. I was sad because I knew that it was not right job for. I remembered my friends talking about MTG and I informed my mother to go to the MTG officer to ask for half of the school fees. My mother was told that we had to register for the football programme by paying five shillings. I registered and started being active in the field.
