UJ & K4L run community sessions
The Department of Health Sciences from the University of Johannesburg (UJ) has teamed with the life-skills coaches and participants from Kick4Life to share experiences and ideas.
The UJ team has been in Lesotho for their academic engagement program, staying and dining at Kick4Life’s social enterprises, Hokahanya Inn & Conference Centre and the No.7 Restaurant.
Participants from both sides interacted on football and academic aspects.
Professor Craig Lambert from the department of Emergency Care was inspired by the work Kick4Life is doing: “I must say I didn’t know anything about Kick4Life before we came here but since our arrival, I learned so much about the organisation and ... Kick4Life is doing a great job with its community."
Mamonethi Rapuleng, a graduate from the University of Lesotho, who plays for Kick4Life's women's team said: “Today was really fantastic. As a footballer, it is important to know that acquiring academic qualifications is essential for our post football time. We loved how they explained everything to us, they are so inspiring and I want to thank Kick4Life and the University of Johannesburg for organising these sessions.”
