West Ham United Foundation visits K4L
Two coaches from West Ham United Foundation are currently on a week-long visit to Kick4Life as part of a project funded by the English Premier League's International Development Fund.
During the trip, the coaches from the UK, Niamh Coyle and Rashid Abba, will deliver a coaching course to 25 young women, training them to run their own sessions as well as to officiate matches and run tournaments. The trip will also include various opportunities for the two organisations to learn from each other and share experience.
Kick4Life's Director of Football Chris Bullock said. "This partnership is very much aligned with our efforts to empower young women and girls through the opportunity to play sport. We are very excited to have these guys with us."
The West Ham United Foundation works to promote health and wellbeing, tackle exclusion and poverty and advance the education of children and young people.
Rashid Abba, who works as the Employability and Coach Education Manager at the Foundation said: “Kick4Life has something special. It’s very inspirational and we feel very privileged to be here. I must say the set-up is very professional, and we look forward to meeting people and passing our knowledge to them.”
