Kick4Life players launch schools campaign
Players from Kick4Life's senior men's and women's teams visited Hlooho Primary School on Thursday as part of their ongoing commitment to use football for social change. The players delivered health education & life-skills activities to students, focused on HIV prevention and diminishing stigma and discrimination related to HIV/AIDS, as well as donating footballs to the school.
The players will be visiting more schools throughout Lesotho throughout the season.
Co-founder, Steve Fleming, said: "Kick4Life is committed to changing lives in Lesotho. This is the first aim of the club, with success on the pitch a way of helping us to realise this most important goal. Involving our star players as role models is a great way of bringing these two areas of operation together. Being a Kick4Life player is more than just performing on the pitch, it is about embracing the overall aims of the club for social change in Lesotho, and creating opportunities for vulnerable youth to achieve healthy and successful futures."
