Alive and Kicking works with schools, community groups and charitable partners to donate locally-made leather sports balls to children who would otherwise not be able to afford them. Donated balls are stitched at our centres in Kenya, Zambia and Ghana, and our research has shown that an average of 45 children play with each donated ball.
Our balls are hand-stitched in Kenya, Zambia and Ghana. Made from African leather, they are built to last in tough terrain.
Our balls are individually screen-printed by hand, allowing us to use them as educational tools and make customised designs.
Our balls are sold and donated across Africa and around the world. This allows children to play with real balls, often for the first time.
Our health awareness programmes use sport to engage young people with vital information about their health.
