Kick4Life is an award-winning non-profit that uses the power of sport as a vehicle to deliver intensive and holistic support to transform the lives of vulnerable youth in Lesotho, including health education, housing, nutrition, literacy and support onto education and employment.
We were founded in 2005 and have since focused our efforts in Lesotho in southern Africa, a country with the third highest HIV prevalence (23.2%) in the world and more than 100,000 children have been orphaned by the disease.
· 40,000 youth have been reached through the interactive K4L HIV Prevention Curriculum.
· 8,000 youth have been tested for HIV with more than 350 referred to ongoing medical treatment and support.
· More than 150,000 youth have been reached through our HIV drama campaign
· More than 350 volunteer role models have been trained to deliver the K4L Curriculum
· Over 50 youth have completed our Fit4Work employment training program and been linked with work placements
· 200 youth are part of our on-going holistic orphan care and support initiative where youth are linked with links to re-housing, education, psycho-social support, health care and employment training.
· 20 of the most vulnerable women in our program, including those who have been victims of sexual abuse, are part of our Women4Women program of intensive care and support.
