Read more about the Rehma story, who we are and where we’re going.
In 2010, Kelvin was asked to coach a young men’s soccer team in the community he grew up in. He took on the task not realizing that it was more than just a coaching gig; it was a commission to love on and empower the youth of his own community. As he spent every day coaching these young men, he began to see the huge needs they were facing. Alongside Nikole, they created different programs focused on giving the youth the skills to make a living. Kelvin mentored the young men on a one-on-one basis, helping them to navigate what life was throwing at them, all the while pointing them to God. In 2012, Nikole began a similar mentorship program for young women in the community.
Together they have worked with hundreds of youth providing one-on-one mentorship, schools sponsorships, scholarships, business education, life-skill trainings, bible studies, health relief and education, sports teams and tournaments, and employment. Most of all, they have provided love to many who have often been let down by those closest to them. They go for coffee and attend graduations. They bake birthday cakes and organize funerals. They crack jokes and cry over hardships. They celebrate accomplishments and encourage hard work. They pray and teach the bible. They discipline bad behaviour and model good relationships. They show respect to the elders and chill with the youth. They love love love!
