RSF have 20 partners in Copperbelt Province, Lusaka Province, Eastern Province, Southern Province, Western Province and Luapula Province that will make sure that kids all across Zambia will benefit from this project! Then of course we have all the kids in our own academy, social football programs and Ligi Yatus, that stretches from Petauke town to the villages in the south.

We are so thankful to our partners and sponsors in the USA that made this possible. It´s with great passion Luara Stukel started the Soccer Gear for Zambia movement, 2 years ago, where football-families in the US donate all this equiptment and ship it to Zambia. This years drive was departuring from USA in the end of July for a 3 month ferry-journey over the Atlantic ocean.

There will be a very special Ligi Yatu in Petauke town on Saturday! We have gotten a tent from SupaMoto where the kids can get out from the heat for a while as well as undergo the sessions with our Rural Changers, and then of course – Distribution day! The teams will look very smart and there will be a lot of excietment!
