QYLFI, RSF Sweden, Rural Sports Foundation

Visit and AAZ quarter report

After a busy week for the management we are now looking back on a great week!

On Monday Erik from RSF Sweden came to Petauke and he will be staying with us now until mid June! We have used the week to get him up to speed with the organization so we now have a foundation to work from.

Otherwise the major task was to compile the report to Action Aid for the start up of the QYLFI project.

After the trainings in February we have used 5 weeks  to deliver 10 sessions per youth group in topics related to SRHR policies. We are happy that we were able to deliver these sessions as planned and are confident that the adolescents we met now have a bit more knowledge of the same field.

As we compiled the report we also wrote some success stories including that we got the support from Chief Mumbi to be able to make a greater impact in the long run, as well as participants saying that sexuall harassments had reduced, girls knowing their rights of school after pregnancy and adolescents now got to know youth friendly corners.

RSF Sweden, Rural Sports Foundation

Incoming computers

A few weeks ago there was a robbery at our office. One of our Rural Changers managed to scare the robbers away, but they got away with some bikes and computers. That was a big set back for us but of course our thoughts go to the Rural Changer who had to witness the scene.

Now we have looked into our security at the office and today we are happy to announce that we have gotten another support from Rural Sports Foundation Sweden. After a fundraise campaign in Sweden we have managed to buy two new computers that will come in handy for our administration in our ambitious plans of 2019.

So thank you Rural Sports Foundation Sweden and everyone involved in the fundraising!

Ligi Yatu, RSF Sweden

Zambia reaching out to Sweden

In July our Director, Job Mwanza, is flying to Sweden for the Gothia Cup (The World Youth Cup) that taking place in Gothenburg. During his stay in Sweden he will, together with Erik Lek from RSF Sweden arrange our first Ligi Yatu in Sweden.

The Ligi Yatu will be a bit smaller than the once we have in Zambia but we want to give the Swedish kids a possibility to try on the concept and on the same time learn about Zambian culture. The topic of the educational sessions will be Zambian culture and especially how it is to raise up in Zambia. One example of this is that Job will bring some Leba that our Zambian participants has made to be used on the tournament.

Leba

The venue will be a small city called Strömstad (the home of RSF Sweden) just on the border to Norway. We are excited to take the concept to Sweden and share the Zambian way to our football friends in Sweden. We also hope that we can spread the information about our activities here in Petauke among the kids and their parents.

Underneath you´ll see the invitation letter to the event that is written in Swedish because it is for the participants and their parents.
