Sports and Health Partnership

With high prevalent HIV/AIDS rates in the African and African-American communities, ZANE takes seriously the promotion of HIV/AIDS Awareness programs in its community.
In this vain, ZANE has partnered with Multicultural Aids Coalition – African For Improved Access (MAC-AFIA). Through this partnership, ZANE has been able to accomplish some of its goals & objectives that seek to advocate for HIV/AIDS Awareness and Prevention.

Through our Sports and Health program, ZANE and MAC-AFIA have fostered a good and long-lasting partnership.

Educational Health Events & Testing Clinics

ZANE is a proud sponsor of ZANE-FC, a ZANE Soccer Club. Membership is open to anyone and highly encouraged!

ZANE’s Football Club participated in the African Health Cup Tournament hosted & sponsored by MAC-AFIA. The tournament hosted Six African Nations and the teams took part in 15min HIV prevention education sessions prior to their 1st games.

At the events are free testing clinics and educational resources for all participants.

ZANE also showcases certain soccer events to soccer coaches at local colleges. These serve as platforms to assist Zambian soccer players based in the United States to gain access to athletic scholarships.

Beginning in 2009, ZANE has begun to assist local church youth groups and youth organizations such as the YMCA of Lusaka, Zambia with soccer balls and some sporting equipment!
Please contact ZANE if you would like to donate sporting goods to talented individuals and groups in Zambia. For more see our sports page

Free Annual Health Clinic in Zambia

One of the goals of this program is to initiate and carry out a Free Annual Health Clinic Project (FAHCP) in rural or under developed Zambia, particularly at the Chimwemwe Trust School.

ZANE seeks partnership with credible organizations to make this much needed ‘Free Annual Health Clinic Project’ a reality in desperate communities in Zambia, particularly the Chimwemwe Community in Kabanana Compound.

ZANE believes a healthy community equals a productive community..
