TackleAfrica delivers HIV education through football coaching to young people in Africa. Working through a network of African and International partners, TackleAfrica train and support local youth leaders, coaches and school teachers to deliver uniquely adapted football drills which include vital messages to help mitigate the impact of HIV within local communities. All the learning is done on the pitch, meaning that young Africans learn essential health messages in a way that they enjoy, understand and will apply to their lives.


TackleAfrica can benefit African streetfootballworld network members through its expertise in HIV education through football coaching training courses and programme support activity.


In addition to the main activity of training local organisations to deliver HIV education, TackleAfrica also helps partners by organising and running tournaments – often combined with HIV testing.


TackleAfrica is a registered UK charity and is currently active in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia and Ghana.

“I enjoy playing football and I have learnt a lot from TackleAfrica about HIV, things like treatment and infections. I want to be strong. I want to be able to pass my HIV knowledge on to others and when I grow up I want to be a doctor”
