Chigoli takes an active role in promoting football in Malawi through its community programme. Football provides a fantastic vehicle to engage then promote key messages around diet, health (HIV/Malaria), hygiene, child rights, education and a variety of social issues which affect children in Malawi.
During 2018 Chigoli will provide football for over 2,000 children, through a range of football tournaments and in the process giving out football equipment into local communities as prizes. Chigoli also funds local coaches to get recognised coaching qualifications as well as running in house coach education workshops to help improve levels of youth football.
Chigoli is also developing a meaningful impact programme in the community of our base on the outskirts of Lilongwe, providing football and netball for children between the ages of 7 and 18.
