K4L hosts University of Cologne
A group of 26 students and lecturers from the University of Cologne in Germany are currently on a two-day visit to Kick4Life where they are studying the work of NGOs and sports organisations in Southern Africa.
Leader of the group, Dr.Alexander Follman, a Post-Doctoral Researcher and Lecturer at the university, said: “This was part of our field school and we are very excited to be here. I researched about Kick4Life, the work that the organisation is doing and I just felt it could be a great experience for my students to come here,”
During their time in Lesotho, the group had the opportunity to engage in health and education activities, play football with staff at the Kick k4life Centre and embark on a guided historical tour at Morija Museum.
Student Andreas Bracht said: “Having read about the issues of HIV/AIDS and the organisations that support people infected and affected by the virus, to us this was the best experience to have actually come here and see how Kick4Life educates the people about HIV. I honestly think the organisation is doing a great job using football to connect with people and changing the lives of disadvantaged people in Lesotho”
During the trip the group stayed at the K4L Hotel & Conference Centre and dined at No.7 Restaurant, K4L's social enterprises which generate income for the organisation's charitable activities as well as providing training and employment opportunities for young people.
