Former West Bromwich Albion head coach Darren Moore, who was dismissed by the club after a run of one point in three games, has returned from a ‘humbling’ trip to Kenya.
Rather than staying in the UK feeling sorry for himself, the 44-year-old headed out to Nakuru for a five-day trip in his role as ambassador for charity Inspire Afrika.
Moore spent three days visiting the Ronaken School in Nakuru as well as making a short trip to the notorious Giotto Dump – a rubbish mountain from which some youngsters are forced to scavenge daily survival.
The football hardman described the experience as “humbling”, adding that “it puts our day-to-day lives back home into context.”
He went on to say that we can all get caught up with what we are doing in our everyday lives and as a result don’t give enough thought to people who are suffering around the world.
Inspire Afrika have targeted a fundraising appeal for just £3-a-week from supporters which is enough to cover daily schooling and food for a youngster.
The charity’s founder Sallyann Wright, who accompanied Moore on the trip, said that the former footballer had been supportive of their work for a long time now and they are hoping this won’t be his last visit.
