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
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
child that plays with one.
