Lizzy in France for World Cup festival
Kick4Life women’s football coach Elizabeth Yelimala is currently attending the Women’s Festival in France that is being supported by Equal Playing Field.
Lizzy, as Yelimala is also known, left Lesotho last week to Lyon to be part of this exciting festival.
Her trip is sponsored by Mot’seeo FC, a football club which strongly believes sporting activities have enormous power to generate real social, economic and environmental changes as well as contribute to sustainable development, social cohesion. Just like Mot’seeo, Kick4Life believes in using football for social change and remains the world’s first football club established for social change. Both Kick4Life and Mots’eeo have been in partnership since 2017.
Director of Football at Kick4Life Chris Bullock thanked Mot’seeo for providing this lifetime experience to Coach Lizzy as he believes the festival will equip her with all the necessary tools needed to help spread the message on women and girls empowerment through sports in Lesotho and the entire world.
“It is a big opportunity for Lizzy to be part of this great initiative. As a women football coach, we know what she stands to gain from this trip and we are excited about the knowledge and ideas she will be bringing back home to help our women football. I want to thank Mot’seeo FC for sponsoring her trip,” said Bullock.
Coach Lizzy has made a big mark in the Lesotho football, coaching at club and international level. She is currently coaching both men and women sides at Kick4Life, and has also been mentoring at the national level.
