It Happened on the Way to War by Rye Barcott

Earnest. Riveting. Unforgettable. Co-founder Rye Barcott’s inspiring memoir explores the contrasts of community development in Africa and counter-insurgency in the Marines as they clashed and converged in his head and heart. He recounts his experiences building and learning from leaders in unlikely places – from the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya, to the bomb-strewn streets of Fallujah and beyond.

Without a Fight - documentary (DVD)

Without a Fight is a feature-length documentary film that explores how soccer can facilitate social change in Kibera, one of Africa’s largest informal settlements. The film provides a glimpse—often a very positive one—into an Africa few have seen. It attempts to break stereotypes associated with people who live in extreme poverty while depicting sports as a tool that could be used to prevent violence among at-risk youth.  

Cost: $20 (personal use only)
