Footballs Made to Last

We just added this story along with the images taken by Richard Mulonga in Lusaka. The story is about an organization called Alive and Kicking Zambia which, in Richard’s words, “The company makes hand-stitched leather footballs that carry health messages on HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis. They are durable, educational and recreational. Alive and Kicking also creates employment for male, female and physically challenged stitchers, who have a target of three footballs each per day.”
You can see the full article and all the images on the Twenty Ten Africa Media Online website. Here are a few of Richard’s images:
