Street Child Africa - Zambia
Football coaching and support
Street Child Africa aim to engage, empower, and educate children who are often uncounted and unheard and give street children safe places to learn, play, and grow.
Years: 2014, 2015
Street Child Africa is a small charity committed to helping street children in the six sub-Saharan African counties in which we work; Ghana, Mozambique, Senegal, Zambia, DR Congo and Uganda. With the help of an ALMT co-funder, we will be supporting the provision of football coaching and equipment to deter 450 at risk children from drifting to the streets in Lusaka, Zambia.
Typically these children live in slums, are victims of physical and sexual abuse, are orphans and do not have a loving family to provide for them. The sessions will also be used as an opportunity to talk to children about issues that affect them and to discuss their feelings and concern to staff who can sign post children to other relevant services run by local partners, such as skills training or informal and formal education.
