While your support goes directly to support the Maseru Street League, we think it's only fair to shift gears a bit and give an update that focuses on some other projects which are equally important and really help to round out the bigger picture of what Kick4Life does. In fact, many of the other projects at Kick4Life are very much related to the Street League and help provide a more comprehensive approach to our support of children in Lesotho.
To put things in context, the monthly football tournament for OVCs (Orphans and Vulnerable Children) that is the Maseru Street League is simply a part of the larger "OVC Care and Support Initiative". This Initiative hosts a number of unique projects that all serve to provide the support and means for children to move off the streets, find stable living arrangements, and/or go back to school. Recognizing that we can't do everything at Kick4Life, we have trained counselors and mentors who are constantly working hard to utilize a strong referral system for those needs which are out of our capabilities, such as food, nutrition and shelter.
Here is a list of other Kick4Life projects that complement the Street League, all of which are currently underway!
Please also keep in mind that Kick4Life trained "coaches" are continuing to deliver our innovative HIV and Life Skills Curriculum in schools and communities around Maseru, and they have already graduated over 1500 youth in 2011 alone! This is really outstanding work done by our coaches and they deserve all the recognition they can get.
And, on top of this, we have just relocated to the new Lesotho Football for Hope Centre, featuring a 7-a-side artificial turf pitch.
The future remains bright for Kick4Life, and you play a big part in making this happen.
