You may be aware that we have a policy of considering grant application requests for amounts of circa £1,000 when our funds allow. We have worked with the Malalo Sports Foundation in Zambia for a number of years and at our Trustee meeting in January agreed to consider their latest grant request.
The project will cover three distinct areas,
- Clearing land for 2 football pitches, 2 Volleyball courts and 2 Netball courts
- Purchase of sports equipment
- Health Education and Football Coaching courses with the aim of re-integrating some young people who have dropped out of school via scholarships.
We will receive regular feedback as the project progresses and will release the funds in 2 separate transactions.
We also agreed to continue our sponsorship of the brilliant Ballysillan YFC Football Camp in Belfast for a further year.
