ABOUT THE CHARITY

This project aims to inform, support, and challenge young Africans to make safer decisions, through limiting the impact of HIV in their communities.  This is achieved through training and supporting African football coaches to deliver interactive HIV education through football coaching sessions to young people in their communities.  All the learning takes place on the pitch in a way that young people enjoy, remember and understand.

PROJECT DETAILS

This project takes place in various rural communities throughout Uganda, Tanzania, or Kenya, and the particular projects description will depend on the needs and resources of that community.  While each project may vary slightly, they all have the same goal of increasing knowledge and awareness of HIV education, to young people on football pitches throughout Africa.
