Alive and Kicking
We are delighted to announce our new partnership with Alive and Kicking, an innovative charity that uses the power of sport to lift families out of poverty and give young people access to vital health education and sport.
Alive and Kicking make hand stitched durable sports balls across three not-for profit centres in Ghana, Kenya and Zambia. Their operations provide ethical jobs in communities facing disadvantage for people who have never had formal work before. Proceeds from selling the balls in local markets and additional fundraising are used to train local sports coaches to deliver vital health education and to donate sports balls across community groups.
As a result of support from the club and our amazing network we believe that this partnership can give thousands of young people across sub-Saharan Africa access to sport for the first time, provide life saving knowledge across local communities, and create long term ethical jobs for those most in need
DDFC will be working with Alive and Kicking to help further their great work. We will be running training days and events throughout the year and will keep you, our members up to date with the real life impact of the DDFC x Alive and Kicking partnership.
