PROJECT HOPE

Malawi - church building project

This church in north Malawi is partly compleated and UCT wants to come alongside Pastor Lottie to give assistance to get the church finnished.

The building has been built with double bricks and is very structually strong.

Within the plot is a football pitch that we want to upgrade and supply the balls, poles and nets to establish a Sports Evangelism ministry in the area including the introduction of Kicking AIDS Out.

Kicking AIDS Out

Permission requested to use information from www.toolkitsportdevelopment.org

In July 2003, UK Sport in partnership with CGC and NIF and with the co-operation of Right to Play have become the founding members of the International Kicking AIDS Out! Network.

Kicking AIDS Out! is an international network of organisations working together using sport and physical activity to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and motivate behavioural change.

Being a member of this network presents opportunities for the UK to support projects at grassroots level in a number of African countries that use sport to tackle the growing problem of HIV/AIDS as well as opportunities to support the development of an international network looking to share best practice and knowledge in the use of sport as a development tool.

African initiative
Kicking AIDS Out! is an African initiative, brought about by people directly affected by the disease. African sport organisations are mobilising their communities and, in partnership with organisations in the north, developing innovative new approaches to address HIV/AIDS and some of the related social issues. The network shares information and best practice, promotes policy development and supports local projects. It provides a forum for exchange between different organisations from different countries and continents - as equal partners - with different contributions.

Southern partners include, EduSport Foundation, Zambia, Education, Sport and Physical Activity Promotion Programme (EMIMA), Tanzania, Mathare Youth Sport Association (MYSA), Kenya, National Sports Council of Zambia (NSCZ), Zambia, Physically Active Youth (PAY), Namibia, Sport and Recreation Commission of Zimbabwe (SRCZ), Zimbabwe, Sport in Action (SIA), Zambia and Sports Coaches' OutReach (SCORE), South Africa.

Kicking AIDS Out! Activities include:

  • Clinics and workshops
  • Peer coaching / education
  • Movement games and traditional games
  • Formation of groups, clubs and leagues
  • Leadership development and capacity building activities (e.g. training trainers, sports leader courses, etc.)
  • Central to success and sustainability is capacity building. Kicking AIDS Out! develops programmes and resources to train coaches, trainers and leaders, building capacity at the individual, organisational and community level.
