Remarkable Rose


by Ellie Roscher
illustrated by Lily Banning

Rose loved soccer. In Kibera, Kenya, however, girls didn’t get to play. Abdul loved soccer too, and his grandmother taught him that girls deserve to learn and play, too. When he saw the boys keeping the soccer ball away from the girls, he got an idea.

Entire communities do better when girls thrive. Based on a true story, Remarkable Rose follows Rose and Abdul as they remind us of the importance of creating communities like Kibera Girls Soccer Academy that unleash a girl’s freedom to be…REMARKABLE.
