World Hope International Kenya adopted a football team called Kawangware Slum Football Club. The adoption of the team was a result of financial constraints the team encountered in the participation of the premier league which involves traveling to major towns in Kenya to honor their fixtures, like Mombasa, Nakuru, Kisii, Nyanza and Thika among others.
Being a community team, the team faired poorly in the league and finished second to last in the league which was largely dominated by corporate teams like Tusker FC, Mumias Sugar, and Ulinzi F.C. among others.
World Hope identified the positive aspect of supporting the team to act as role models for other youth in the participation of the Kenya Football Federation league. During this period the team attracted a lot of following from members of the community who included men, women, children from all corners of Kawangware and Dagoretti constituency.
The team finally enrolled to participate in the nationwide league in the year 2004 under the World Hope FC name. The organization supported the team financially and morally and it emerged top at the end of the season gaining promotion to the premier league after a spell of one season.
The team enjoyed a decent level of success since then, finishing 7th in the first year after being promoted to the premier league. They then participated and eventually won the President Cup (equivalent to F.A. Cup in United Kingdom) thereby representing Kenya in the Cup winners Cup in 2005 where they were eliminated by Uganda Revenue Authority F.C. on 2-1 goal aggregate.
In 2008, Ambassadors in Sport (AIS) and World Hope entered negotiations to transfer ownership of the team to AIS in an agreement that saw the team change names to Nairobi City Stars in December. In the 2009 season, NCS finished in 6th place with 43 points, setting a record in position, points, and goals scored for the club.
Currently the team is struggling without a sponsor and had been relegated at the end of last year only to be promoted again back to the Premiewr league as a result of the confusion that surrounded the fight between KPL and FKF.
