Why πŸƒπŸΏβ€β™€οΈ100 Miles in August πŸƒπŸΏβ€β™€οΈ??

When asked why she attended soccer practice instead of hanging out with her friends and chasing boys, one of our Driven Queens answered:

β€œAfter playing football at Driven, I started watching the national team play on TV. I realized that if they could do it, I could also do it. I began to work hard and realized that I’m good at this. This could make my life go somewhere.”

Instead of getting pregnant, the biggest threat of poverty against girls ages 14-20, our 50 girls are:

When Bertsheba starting playing football at Driven’s Center, her mother would come to the field looking for her and chase her home. She was not allowed to play soccer.

Over the next few years, as Bertsheba became a coveted player on our team and in our league, after a lot of assurance from our coaches of what we were doing at Driven, and even sponsoring her schooling, Bertsheba’s mom became a fan. ✊🏼✊🏾✊🏿

We are SO proud of Driven Queens’ very own Bethsheba, Emeldah and Patience for making the Central Province’s Under 17 Inter-Provincial Team!!! 🌟

After a week of tryouts, of the 15 girls selected from all over Central Province (equivalent to a state in the USA) three players came from Driven Football Club!! ✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾

These girls will play against the other Provinces of Zambia. ⚽️

Rewarding their achievement, the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) took them today to meet the Provincial Minister and the Permanent Secretary (think Congressman and Representative)!! βš–οΈ

The diligence, commitment and integrity of our coaches, staff and players are creating opportunities for these kids that might otherwise see very little outside of their own compound. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΏ

We. Are. Corruption. Free.✊🏼✊🏾✊🏿

At this level of competition, bribing and beating officials, other teams and coaches is rampant and regular occurrences. 🚫

We have higher goals than winning games: Christ-likeness, discipline, responsibility, integrity, compassion, service, leadership. πŸ†

Nevertheless, our 🌟SuperStars🌟are ranked 3rd in Division III and still climbing with the last few games of the season!! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΏ

Did you know that Driven has two ✌🏾 students in higher education?!! πŸ‘¨πŸΎβ€πŸŽ“πŸ§‘πŸΎβ€πŸ”§

This is a life-altering feat in the community we work in! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΏ

We have partnered with an excellent local Trade School, and our students are working hard and learning lots of new things! πŸšœπŸ› πŸ§°

As you can imagine, the costs are considerably higher than secondary school.

A local partner, Kelvin, came to give our β€œFriday Talk” this month, where 145 kids attended!

He spoke on overcoming poverty. He shared his testimony of eating nshima with only salt and water (considered the food of the poorest do the poor) and sharing a school uniform with his brother 6 years older than him as a child to now owning his own business and traveling all over Southern and Eastern Africa.

He told them no one could end poverty for them - BUT - they could end poverty for their entire family line! It was a powerful day!! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΏ

P.S. In the video, Kelvin asks who has eaten this same food of the poor…

In an effort to combat high infant mortality rates, Zambia instituted a program several years ago of regular check ups, weighing sessions, and vaccines for infants and children under 5.

Many of the families in Makululu behind Driven live too far from the clinic to get these regular check ups for their young children. We partnered with a local clinic to provide a space where they could provide these check ups to these families.

More than 300 moms brought their children under 5 to Driven’s property to get health check ups today that they wouldn’t have otherwise had access to!!! πŸ‘πŸΌ

We are thrilled to partner with and serve the community in this new way! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Bridget and Dorcus were the first two girls we sponsored for school who didn’t attend our Sports Ministry. ⚽️

Leshiwe, their mom (right), met us at our field one day. β€œMy children don’t come here, but I know you’re in the community to help.” πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΏ

She told us how her husband just left them and agreed to pay rent for one more month before they were in their own. πŸ˜”

β€œI don’t know how we will survive, but all I need now is to keep them in school.” πŸ™πŸΌ

Both girls are excellent students and education is a priority in their family, unlike so many other families in Makululu. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΏ

We covered their school fees and uniforms and supplies for the year. πŸ“š

Soon after, when we started our feeding program, we offered the job to Leshiwe first to cook the snacks during the week and meals on game days. 🍳

Today, this family has the job and dignity to support themselves, and her girls are on track to break the cycle of poverty for the next generation through education. β›“

Covid 😷 has been rough on Makululu. Not physiologically, but economically. Our people are struggling. πŸ˜”

Schools are still out πŸ“š, except for testing, and FAZ (Football Association of Zambia) ⚽️ won’t let us gather yet.

But we wanted to help... πŸ€”

Today, we got to pass out 80 (25kg) bags of meal 🌽 to the 80 families whose children πŸƒπŸΎ participate in Driven’s Sports Ministry. 🌟

We wanted to communicate that, though we can’t meet up and haven’t seen them in a while, we are still thinking of them and we’re here to help. πŸ’—
