Nearly 3 million people are living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya and Zambia. Alive & Kicking believes that by combining social entrepreneurship with sport’s mass appeal, lasting economic and social development can be achieved in Africa.

 

Alive & Kicking uses football as a platform to educate young people in high-risk regions of Africa about the importance of maintaining healthy and active lifestyles. The organisation trains coaches to teach participants about personal hygiene techniques and mediate discussions about a number of preventable illnesses and diseases.

 

Alive & Kicking also provides job opportunities for thousands of young people in these regions, employing people in Kenya, and Zambia.

“Alive Kicking has meant being able to educate my children for the first time - I have paid my children through school and invested in a farming project. My life is better and I know others are helped through our health programmes”
