Between September 2003 and April 2004, TackleAfrica carried out its first ever project – which was organised in partnership with Christian Aid and Concern.
Bogus cash collecting for Tackle Africa
It has come to our attention that some groups of young people have been approaching members of the public for cash donations in TackleAfrica's name on London streets and doorsteps. These people do not represent TackleAfrica in any way, and any money they obtain is fraudulently taken and does not come to us.
TackleAfrica is working with local NGO CCFMC in South West Kenya to use the popularity of football among the youth to pass on HIV/AIDS messages.
Thanks to the generosity of project sponsor Siren TV, TackleAfrica have been able to team up with PfP to run this project in the Machakos district in central Kenya.
