Children from disadvantaged communities in Lusaka, Zambia, face problems such as HIV & AIDS, gender-based violence, childhood marriages and substance abuse. The problems are mainly caused by systemic issues with the education of these children and their parents or guardians, and the community at large.

 

Sport in Action, uses a holistic approach to reach those communities by educating children using the tool of football. The organisation works to protect them from violence, most notably on their way to and from school, but also by being active in the communities and coordinating with the guardians of children.

 

Sport in Action uses football development methods like football3 to educate about HIV/AIDS and gender-based violence while aiming to help children grow with a sense of self-worth and optimism, with healthier behaviour, in violence-free environments. They learn teamwork and other life skills crucial to their personal development of a healthy lifestyle.
