Added to this list is now the computer training program through which we teach youths the foundations of operating a computer in order to prepare them for future work opportunities.

starting up businesses that will alleviate poverty . Currently poverty levels among Zambian women stand at over 70% of the population. We hope to reach even more women when future funds allow. Our current capacity can only allow 20 women ,we however are optimistic that another larger number of women can be taken on if we put our hands together in partnership and support. One person can only do so much for another person, but if we become a great team of partners in this noble cause, we can initiate and ignite serious change and development to many!

News from a local club in the “Adopt a Club” program Our community local club is called Superade academy, it’s a group of young people from peri-urban settlements of Ndola. It was founded for a society that feels helpless and hopeless. Most faces that you would meet here in our community would either read ‘fear’, ‘uncertainty’, or indeed ‘faithlessness’. Therefore, It took us going deep into the hearts of these community youth regardless of what we

In other words, Superade Academy was born out of a passion to get into people’s hearts and remind them that right within their hearts is a hero. Its primary existence is to link local youths to something bigger than themselves.

Credit goes to Dream Factory Zambia, through the Adopt-a-Club project. It has had such a positive and greater impact on both our team and the community at large. Besides the training of trainers in soccer administration, coaching, providing football equipment and coaching personnel. Dream Factory has made us believe that we are a part of a larger world. Despite our humble backgrounds and beginnings, we feel like giants as we lean on their shoulders.

Superade Academy believes these youths can have a brighter and broader future than they can possibly think. If they could only go an extra mile in the "fog" of their hopeless future, they would be able to see yet another mile of progress. Superade Academy is a ‘team’ where we believe we are all angels with only one
