What a great achievement for staffs, peer leaders and older boys from RSF Zambia. 160 direct Participants plus 45 indirect participants.

On May 12th, 2018, RSFZ managed to put smells on 205 children that came through for the Ligi Yatu. 16 teams of 10 players each went through 20 minutes football games and educational lessons conducted by the rural changers. This time, rural changers taught the boys and girls on the importance of saving money for good purpose. The activities which started around 9:15hrs went through to 14:00hrs to allow all participants play needed games and go through planned lessons. We all look forwards to another exciting Ligi Yatu schedule on the 16th of June 2018

NOTE

RSFZ, uses the power of sports to inspire 100 to 200 children between ages of 6 to 14 every month through Ligi Yatu (our league). The project is centered on education while the participants got through football games. The older boys and girls from the academy (U15 upwards) go to their communities to recruit boys and girls for the Ligi Yatu. These older players becomes coaches and referees while trained peer leaders make station where the participating boys and girls goes through for educational sessions. At the moment RSF engage these participating boys/girls on YDF module which is focusing on water, sanitation and hygiene and Goal module which focus on be money Savvy, Rights, Leadership and Health. The facilitators pick a topic from either of the two modules each month and teach the participating children that month.
