It´s busy days in Zambia! Earlier this week the shipment with equiptment from USA arrived to Lusaka. Director Job Mwanza got help from partners from Child Life Soccer Academy in Lusaka to arrange for futher distribution all around the country.
The shipment from USA this year came with no less than 2300 individual items! There is over 200 balls, matchkits for about 800 kids, over 60 shoes and other football equiptment!
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!
Look out for more pictures on our Facebook and on the facebook site for Soccer gear for Zambia as we get more photos from academies across the country! We want to thank everyone involved in this project and wish all beneficiaries good luck and joyment with your equiptment!
