Kick4Life's Program Manager Mbulelo Mochochoko is currently participating in a five days One Young Summit held in London, United Kingdom, representing Kick4Life and Lesotho.
The summit started on the 21st of this month and will come to an end on the 25th and it brings together young people from different non-governmental organizations who are actively involved in the social impact initiatives.
Sbu, as Mochochoko is popularly known in Kick4Life and also within his community, heads the “Good Health and Well-being through Sport” programme. Recently, he has also been tasked with another responsibility to handle the newly launched “Champions United” programme.
He is amongst the 18 winners of the AstraZeneca Young Health Programme Scholarship which was awarded to young people who work for or are involved with a non-governmental organisation, social enterprise, community based organization, or who are individuals making an impact through advocacy activities or direct programming related to fighting the burden of non-communicable diseases. In particular, this scholarship supports young leaders making an impact in at-least one of the following areas:
- - Tackling tobacco use and alcohol consumption;
- - Increasing physical activity and exercise;
- - Improving diet and nutrition;
- - Raising awareness of mental health and supporting people with mental health problems; and
- - Tackling pollution and improving air quality.
Expressing his delight to Mbulelo, Operations Director Motlatsi Nkhahle said this was a well -deserved opportunity for him and Kick4Life is confident he will bring home a great experience to share. “We believe he will come back with renewed enthusiasm to communicate and advocate for the health issues that will add value to our work. We have no doubt that he will bring back valuable skills and knowledge that will enable him to continue contributing in the development of Lesotho,”
