At Sport in Action we recognise that sport has a special attraction to young people as it offers opportunities for fun-play and physical challenges. Organised sport therefore has the potential to attract children and young people in a way that no other means of communication can. As a team we look to take advantage of the power of sport as a mobilising tool to reach underprivileged groups such as orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs), girls and women, children with disabilities, and street children in both rural and urban areas.
Our full time members of staff are supported by a team of volunteers and peer leaders, and through links with our internationally renowned partners, we aspire to make a real difference to the lives of our fellow Zambians.
SIA’s main target groups:
- Orphaned and vulnerable children
- Children with disabilities
- Girls and women
- Children living and working on the street
- Children and adults living with HIV and AIDS
