Kick4Life – Since 2013

Through our partnership with Kick 4 Life we provide uniforms to 25 children.  Kick4Life uses the power of sports to help change the lives of vulnerable youth in Lesotho. Their programs include health education and HIV prevention, voluntary HIV testing, life-skills development, mentoring, support towards education & employment, and the chance to enjoy sport.
