In Malawi, the pandemic resulted in The Chituka Village Project being forced to suspend the after school mentoring programs and sports activities for the children. Some of the major setbacks were the dropout rates of primary school students as well as young girls experiencing unwanted pregnancy, forced marriages, and other forms of abuse. In order to get The Chituka Village Project back on track, The Banda Bola Sports Foundation (BBSF) needs to focus on what's working and what is sustainable.

The focus will be and not be limited to the following:

  • Introduction of Girls Soccer Leadership Academy, to empower girls with skills to solve issues on and off the field about their rights and the rights of all children
  • Introduction of Computer Lab Learning Center for the children in Chituka Village at Malenga Mzoma Primary School
  • Introduction of coed soccer play days for children in grades 1,2,3, and 4
  • Support for schools that have girls and boys, soccer teams, while promoting gender equality

I hope that you will continue to support our cause and spread the word.
