Mission Statement

Kick4Life uses the power of sport to transform the lives of some of the most disadvantaged young people in the world.

Description

Founded in 2005, we are based at the Football for Hope Centre in Lesotho in southern Africa, where we deliver a range of projects aimed at supporting vulnerable boys and girls. This includes health education and HIV prevention, voluntary HIV testing, life-skills development, mentoring, support towards education & employment, and the chance to enjoy sport..

Lesotho has the third highest HIV prevalence in the world (23.6%) and more than 100.000 children have been orphaned by the disease. It is also a beautiful country with a rich culture, and Kick4Life is committed to helping our participants build a brighter future for themselves and their country.

We are also passionate about promoting and raising awareness of the use of sport for positive change, and we play an active part in several international networks including Beyond Sport, streetfootballworld and the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation
