Alive & Kicking talks to the Cowfolk

Date: Wednesday 13th March, 2019
Time: 7:30 pm
Venue: Easton Community Centre

Join us to hear more about Alive and Kicking’s innovative approach to sport for development and find out how you can get involved.

Since 2004 Alive and Kicking have made over 900,000 ethical sports balls in its three not for profit centres across sub-Saharan Africa. The charity provides full time ethical jobs for people from vulnerable backgrounds so they can lift themselves and their families out of poverty. Proceeds from sales and additional fundraising are then used to donate Alive and Kicking sports balls to communities and support football for good organisations to deliver vital health programming.

Since opening A+K have created over 1,000 jobs, reached over 7 million children through ball donations and engaged over 82,000 young people in health education programmes

Ben Sadler invites you to hear about the work of Alive and Kicking and to explore ideas of collaboration with the Easton Cowboys and Cowgirls. Ben joined Alive and Kicking as CEO in November 2017 and brings more than 10 years experience working in sport for development organisations including 4 years living across sub-Saharan Africa.
