October/November 2008

A team of volunteers (Thanks Rob, Jamie & Sam!) delivered a brilliantly successful project in Zambia.

Want to see the team in action? View us on Youtube.

The guys hand delivered over 2,500 footballs and netballs across the rural regions of Zambia, trying to reach as many schools, orphan centres, youth projects and individual kids as possible. 

We teamed up with the charity Alive and Kicking - buying their balls, which are made and stitched in Zambia. These balls have aids and malaria awareness messages printed on them and where possible we brought the stitchers themselves with us to talk to the kids. In a country where one million people are estimated to be living with HIV and where malaria remains the number one killer, these balls will be used as tools to spread awareness. They will also bring a huge smile to every Zambian child that plays with one.
