Africaid's WhizzKids United

WKU was developed in response to the staggering high numbers of HIV infection amongst youth in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. The HIV prevalence rate in KwaZulu-Natal is estimated at 16.5%, with ante-natal clinics in some areas reporting prevalence rates above 60%, making this province the epicentre of the HIV/AIDS crisis both nationally and globally!From our experience working with youth we realised that kids learn and respond best when they are motivated and when the method of learning is appropriate, dynamic, goal orientated and delivered in a language that kids speak and understand.Enter WhizzKids United which recognizes that football is the perfect tool with which to teach as it speaks a universal language which appeals to all children, both boys and girls, and in doing so transcends culture and background.
