“More than a shirt, feeding a passion for life”

Keep up to date with our news what we're doing in the world of KitAid and sport

Sunday, 18 September 2011


The Alive & Kicking Orphanage World Cup gave over 800 orphans and vulnerable children in the city of Lusaka access to organised football and netball competitions and at the same time provideD life skills training and HIV/AIDS sensitisation. A series of mini leagues were held over a six month period and were followed by a World Cup style tournament running over two weeks and culminating in a thrilling final.

A total of 450 footballs and netballs have been donated, along with football kits. Over 600 children have received HIV/AIDS awareness information, and over 100 coaches and teachers have received training on how to disseminate HIV/AIDS awareness through sport. In a city where there are limited opportunities for the most vulnerable children to take part in organised sport, this project has been received with gratitude and smiles by children and their teachers and coaches alike.

Thanks to Ben Sadler, Project Officer at TackeAfrica and the team.
