This is an incredible gift the worth of which is immeasurable. James Chilimampunga is a sports coach for Building Futures in Malawi. Every day he visits two football fields in different parts of Lilongwe, Malawi and he coaches football to kids between the ages of 5 and 14. He helps them improve their skills on the field but more importantly he is a wonderful role model. He is trained as an HIV/AIDS awareness counsellor and he also teaches about nutrition. This information is extremely well received and the kids that James coaches live for his visits. Often around 200 children turn up at every session James runs. This could amount to 2000 children every week. On Fridays James visits Lilongwe prison and coaches a group of the best behaved inmates. The Lilongwe Prison Guards have found this coaching a great incentive for encouraging good behaviour in the prison. James is incredible. Help him build a team of coaches by funding one for a month. Thank You.
