Changing life's and bringing hope through Football/Sports


Football / Sport is one of the most successful tools used in modern era to reach out communities and raise awareness.

Sports brings smiles, hope, unites communities and can even help solve problems faced by youths, the girl child and the community

''It's more than just a shirt/kit''

Out there is a world where one will say life is so unfair especially to those who can’t afford anything to put on either in the playing field or to church and other family and community gatherings. With a football shirt on confidence levels shoots high for all. Thembalethu Foundation reaches out to the United Kingdom Communities especially to the Charities who help recycle football shirts, boots, trainers and other sporting accessories. These, we ship to Zimbabwe to help the needy. They value those used items as if they were brand new. Reaching out to those villagers and seeing their smiles and happiness on the arrival of the shipments is what keeps us going. Changing lives is what we do best. Those old shirt some people keep binning at the end of football season in the UK can change young and grown ups in the part of the world that some of us grew up in and that’s equal to a rare treasure. Every child has got the right to play, yes with correct sporting gear but in some areas they play without - imagine handing them those t shirts and telling them to go and play - what impact will that have on the energy levels and motivation just to play wearing something so valuable. Help us help them with all the extras that you think of throwing into the bin. Our highly recommended partners are helping us a lot to do this and KITAID is one of them.



 changing lives of African girl child and bringing hope.

The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that the health of the African woman is affected by a plethora of factors, most of which revolve around lack of adequate health facilities and infrastructure. The African girl child often find themselves at crossroads between cultural norms that work against them and the demand to survive in the patriarchal war torn communities, which then forces these girls to enter a “formal work place” which includes prostitution at a very early age because of poverty and the parents' attitude towards the girl child. Therefore, forcing girls to face severe challenges and difficulties in the society at a very young age.

Rape: In many cases, young rape victims are left with unwanted pregnancies or diseases. As long as the rape statistics remain as high as they are and as long as the myths like sleeping with a virgin will cure HIV&AIDS persists, the number of rape victims will continue to increase, leaving an African girl child in vulnerable state.

Everyone would love to have a mother, wife, girlfriend and  a sister. Then why not help our girls the women who will help shape the future of the communities?

If Girls' potential is overlooked, their destiny perishes right in front of them, and the would be change they are likely to bring forth dies.

The girls have been overlooked for centuries. Their contribution in every our communities has either been limited or gone unrecognized leading to a stunt growth on women of tomorrow in comparison with boys, who have educational and training programs designed and engineered for them. Girls are disadvantaged and the impression is they belong in the kitchen which is not true if given a chance.

JOBS: Some jobs are still believed to be for men

SPORTS: 90% of Sports personnel are men, hence less income for women and contribution to sporting activities.

EDUCATION: It is believed that boys must go to school, and girls remain home being groomed to be  future house wives leaving them more volunerable to segregation.
