AotB Launch Supporters Club
Africa on the Ball today (6th November) delighted to announce the launch of our brand new Supporters Club, created to help us grow our reach and impact in deprived African communities whilst giving donors a unique and engaging experience.
Joining the supporters’ club gives the public the opportunity to get into the football business by sponsoring Kalingalinga on the Ball FC and members of its community programmes and initiatives, from as little as £4 per month.
Africa on the Ball formed Kalingalinga on the Ball FC in 2011, helping the club grow from a community venture to a fourth-tier club in Zambia, whilst developing food and community little picking programmes and an educational scholarship funds for players to finish their basic schooling. The charity has future plans to build a community club house which will also be used as a community learning and health centre, alongside an academy.
The charity formed an outreach programme in which Kalingalinga on the Ball FC players undertake educational and football focused sessions in deprived surrounding communities, including the local orphanage and primary schools.
In Zambia, the average life expectancy is under 40 years old, which is why it was chosen as the country to focus on for Africa on the Ball’s first project.
Andrew Jenkin, Founding Trustee of Africa on the Ball says:
“Our aspiration is to be the best community sports club in the world, using the unique ability of football to advance education, healthcare and enterprise throughout African communities and to positive change lives. Although we’re a relatively small charity, we hope the Supporters Club will help us drastically grow our reach and impact throughout the continent while offering donors a unique and engaging experience with our work”.
