Rexe Roofing Products Ltd’s purpose is to improve the living standards of home owners; Our duty does not end there, we also have a duty to create a better society and find different ways in which we can help the community.
Football is one of the most favoured sports in Kenya; We see children getting interested in it from a young age and many other people watching different leagues on weekends and other game nights. It is almost a default sport in all learning institutions.
Small clubs form everywhere with the dream of being the top club in the country, and this is how The Rhinos Club Kamangu FC was formed. Initially, the Rhinos club participated in local tournaments while trying to build their name and their game. It was not until the beginning of this year that they decided to join the big League and registered their name with the Football Kenya Federation.
Rexe Roofing acting on a request from the team’s coach, Mr Mwaura, decided to support the team on their journey to the big League. We joined hands with the coach to empower the team to achieve their dream.
REXE Roofing provided the team with better equipment sponsored them to participate in the league.
Some challenges the team faced include:
- Lack of equipment
- Lack of funds to pay for registration in the League
- Lack of transportation.
As the team’s sponsors Rexe Roofing provided funds to boost the team and better their playing conditions. The team is now competing for top position in the league and currently at position three.
The team has since seen an increase in the number of young footballers coming to join them. The youth mentorship program has been life changing. We have seen young players coming from a grim background to having a sense of purpose and hope for a brighter future.
