K4L holds careers day for student-athletes
Kick4Life hosted a career guidance session for 46 young people enrolled in the K4L Academy programme, after completing their Lesotho General Certificate of Secondary Education (LGCSE) in 2022.
The session was designed to provide the young people with knowledge needed in preparation for applying to institutions of higher learning as well as exploring progression routes into employment and vocational training.
Sello Mohami, who recently graduated from Lerotholi Polytechnic, is currently volunteering at Kick4Life, working with the maintenance team to gain experience in his field of study. As their peer, and as a former student-athlete, advised the attendees on the importance of education. He shared his passion for construction and for improving Lesotho’s sports infrastructure.
The participants were guided on how to choose careers based on subjects they enjoy, their personalities, interests and their aspirations for the future. They were also provided with a list of institutions they could apply to and the courses offered there.
Academy Director, Maleshoane Lash Mokhathi, said, ‘Congratulations to you all for making it this far. Kick4Life wishes you well and wishes to see you become better versions of yourself both on and off the pitch. I hope you have learned that it is as important to value education as it is to value football, because education will elevate you, it will put you in high places, it will earn you respect, but most importantly, education will change your life and make you a better person. Good luck to you all in your future endeavours’.
