Baraka has teamed up with a fantastic enterprise called Alive & Kicking, which employs 60 local people in Chawama, Zambia where we work closely with the Chawama Sports Academy to inspire children through sport whilst raising awareness of the dangers of AIDS, alcohol and drug abuse, and promoting education and social integration.
Here are Alive and Kicking's basic principles:
To employ previously unemployed adults in Africa at a fair wage to hand stitch sports balls;
To donate durable, repairable leather balls to children in some of the poorest communities in Africa; and
To warn children about the dangers of HIV/AIDS, malaria, and TB by printing every ball with health awareness messages.
