The single mum touched many hearts with her selfless act showing just how important the sport and her child are, leading to a lot of praise online.
In a press statement, Expeditions Maasai Safaris, who arranged for the trip, stated the footballer arrived in Mombasa on the evening of Monday, March 15.
Wangui was accompanied by her young daughter Valencia and her 60-year-old grandmother Mary Wangui, who was left taking care of the baby as the sportswoman competed.
The three jetted out of Nairobi on a Fly540 aircraft and are expected to be back in Nairobi latest Friday.
Expedition's boss, Karema, who paid Wangui a visit at her Nyandarua home to make the offer, said her actions showed incredible motherhood spirit.
"It's not every day we get to see young mothers playing football in Kenya, and at the same time reminding us that no matter how busy we might get, we should never forget to pause and care for those who deserve our care,” said Karema.
Wangui's photo was taken during a match putting Njambini Women vs Karangatha Women.
The tournament, held on Monday, March 8, was part of an International Women's Day celebration organised by Nyandarua women representative Faith Gitau.
Wangui also sells airtime, when not playing football, to make ends meet.
Her story touched many on social media who were encouraged by her selfless actions of ensuring she takes care of her daughter while also representing her team.
Wangui in a recent interview noted she would like to see her daughter grow up to become an even bigger football star than she is.
