Skills4Life underway across 5 districts
It has been a busy few weeks for the Community Programmes team at K4L, with 232 young people graduating from the Skills4Life curriculum.
Skills4Life, delivered in partnership with UNICEF Lesotho, uses football as a vehicle for helping young people to develop key transferable skills for employability and entrepreneurship, including conflict management, self-awareness, decision-making and resilience.
Since the start of the project, Kick4Life has now delivered the curriculum to girls and boys in schools and community groups across five districts of Lesotho: Maseru, Mafeteng, Quithing, Mohale’s Hoek and Thaba Tseka.
Programmes Director, Maphoka Ramokoatsi, attended a graduation event at Lithabaneng LECSA School where she thanked the school for its collaboration with Kick4Life and congratulated the students for their commitment and energy in completing the course. She also urged the pupils to share the knowledge & skills they learned with their peers and siblings outside of school.
Lithabaneng school teacher, Puseletso Silase, thanked Kick4Life for passing on its knowledge to their students, with another teacher, Mr. Letseakang Mpotso, stating that the students had demonstrated improved motivation since completing the Skills4Life course.
