We are currently running programmes in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia and (soon) Malawi and are about to start work in Cote D’Ivoire and Burkina Faso with former Coaching for Hope projects.
All of our programmes involve working with partners to support coaches to deliver effective interactive football-based curriculums with young people in their communities. Some of our projects support specific groups, such as young women and girls or people living with HIV. Others focus on specific outcomes that are important to the local community, such as encouraging young people to access voluntary HIV testing and counselling, or building resilience to harmful practices that put people at risk such as Child Marriage or Female Genital Mutilation.
In all of our programmes we give young people the information, skills and confidence to take control of their sexual and reproductive health and make safe, informed decisions.
We work with both boys and girls (roughly a 48/52 split as of January 2016) with an age range of 12-18; we want to reach people before and as they become sexually active to ensure that they are fully informed and empowered to make safe decisions.
