The outskirts of Lusaka, Zambia, are home to a number of underserved communities where young people are faced with low economic and social growth as well as inadequate infrastructure and high rates of HIV/AIDS.


Bauleni United Sports Academy (BUSA) trains vulnerable young people by empowering and enabling them to be the change they want to see in their communities. In partnership with local schools, the organisation uses sports to teach life skills and leadership training. After surveying participants and coaches, BUSA noticed a severe underrepresentation of women among them.


As a result, BUSA has been on a mission to tackle this issue in its educational programmes. BUSA’s objective is for these young people to become future change-makers and local role models for their communities.


BUSA organises 500 league games and tournaments each year including the annual Children’s Cup, which attracts over 3000 children, and has taken part in developing Zambia’s physical education curriculum.

I was dreaming that one day I will also go back to school after my mother died and my father married another woman who has been mistreating me so much. But not all was lost as the time I joined Bauleni United Sports Academy my life changed dramatically, I joined to play football but I never knew that it was more than Football, Busa is my family now and iam happy that iam back at school and playing football has given me my HOPE back. I now feel happy because I will complete school and be a doctor. Thanks to Busa and Football for Hope.
