This is a program that aims at using sport to address the problem of HIV/AIDS. HIV/AIDS has become Zambia's waste tragedy. Innovative methods from sport such as movement games, focus group discussion, leagues, tournaments and peer coaching are used to confront HIV&AIDS and other related problems.

Using sport to achieve development.

This can be achieved:-

  • by running Programmes that empower youth peer coaches
  • by integrating life skills training in all sports activities and  Programmes e.g. drug abuse, HIV/AIDS, child abuse etc
  • by using KAO movement games to teach life skills
  • by running Programmes and activities to empower girls and special groups
