Alive & Kicking Ghana

Alive & Kicking Ghana became our third stitching centre when it opened its doors in 2012. Over the next few years, it will provide employment for approximately 50 people, with job opportunities targeted at those with disabilities and at unemployed young people.

The workshop began training staff in late 2012 and the first sellable balls were made in January 2013. The first health outreach programme began in December 2013, with 64 local coaches being trained in using football to raise awareness of HIV and malaria.

In December 2014, A&K Ghana launched the ‘Tornado’ ball in partnership with former Ghana captain Stephen Appiah. The ball is the first of its type in Ghana – made by Ghanaians from almost entirely locally sourced materials, with money going directly back in to charitable projects in Ghana. This exciting initiative sees The Tornado on sale across Ghana, with five cedis from every sale going directly to The Stephen Appiah Foundation.
