STFC Community Foundation in Africa

Livingstone, Zambia

The Swindon Town Foundation team have forged a Memorandum of Understanding agreement with the Zambia Livingstone FA Coaching Association, and to date have visited Lusaka, Kitwe and Livingstone. 

The agreement with Livingstone has seen the Foundation team deliver a Coaching Education Programme and a Youth Tournament, whilst engaging and delivering sessions in local schools and communities. 

We’ve been proud to install solar lighting in local schools, giving children the ability to study for longer hours during the day, and we’ve also had the opportunity to deliver disability coaching projects, with the opportunity of coaching, match experience, and refereeing tutoring for young referees.

During our time in Zambia, our coaching team have worked with hundreds of youngsters and Zambia Association Coaches, with the word of Swindon Town Football Club being spread far and wide.

In 2019 we are planning to hold a coaching education course for the Livingston FA Coaching Association, alongside running coaching sessions for their local teams and schools. We also plan to run a number of disability coaching sessions culminating in a disability festival, and a tournament for under 14s and under 16s. 

The Foundation have supplied the Livingstone Coaching Association with footballs, kit and equipment, which is shipped over to the country thanks to the help and contributions of DHL and The Big Yellow Storage in Swindon. We’ll be sending over another 40 boxes in 2019, and we’re currently accepting donations from the Swindon community. 

The proceeds of our annual Six-a-Side Festival of Football go towards our various Zambia projects.
