Kalusha Foundation
The Kalusha Foundation is a non-governmental charitable organization which wasestablished by Mr. Kalusha Bwalya in June 2003.Our vision is:
To that end we promote youth football and conduct HIV/AIDS awareness among youth. TheKalusha Foundation’s main activities are providing coaching courses, organising workshops,organising football leagues and tournaments (both boys and girls) and providing HIV/AIDSand other ‘life skills’ education.The highest need at present is for reproductive health information and life skillseducation. A lot still has to be done to get this education to a higher level; more coachesand peer educators need to be trained.With this information folder we are trying to take the first step! Because as we all know:everyone is involved; either you are infected or affected.As a volunteer of our foundation we ask you to implement the information in this folderinto your current activities. Our main focus for the coming year will be on the life skillseducation, and you are able to help us with that! You can do this by implementing themovement games, by having chats and discussions with your teams, by letting them writepoems, by asking them the provided questions and so on. The life skills education shouldbe given at least once a week for all the teams both boys and girls under our foundation.Before a match, during a tournament or even as a separate activity, it’s up to you.We ask you to go through the provided information carefully and would like to thank you inadvance for your support!Please contact one of us if anything is unclear, and keep in mind: ‘a healthy body, ahealthy future’.Thank you for extending Kalusha Foundation's capacity to develop football and contributeto development of communities.All the best!

1. Introduction
HIV/AIDS are words, which every person in Zambia knows, only, what do they mean? InZambia, HIV/AIDS remains a challenge as it affects families and individuals causing deathand illness. In order to prevent ourselves and the youth around us from acquiring HIV/AIDSwe must have information about it.In this Guide, we will explain what HIV/AIDS is and how we can use this information whilewe educate the children in our football teams and our communities.First, we will describe HIV/AIDS and after this you will find different ways of using thisinformation in your movement games, your education and group discussions. This will be aguideline for you, the coach, trainer or peer educator. Think about your impact on thechildren that you coach, you can educate them! You as a coach for example, can be a rolemodel for the children.
1.1 What is HIV/AIDS?
First, a few facts about AIDS. AIDS is an incurable illness caused by the HIV virus. HIVstands for Human Immune Deficiency Virus, and is sometimes also called the AIDS virus.The virus
breaks down the immune system
. This makes the body more susceptible to allmanner of infections and certain forms of cancer, which it would otherwise be able towithstand.AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. This means that
a person's immunesystem no longer functions as it should 
. This allows the tenacious virus to do itsdestructive work and break down the immune system.If someone is found HIV positive, it does not mean this person is ill. With other words, if someone is HIV positive, it does not mean this person has AIDS.The HIV virus is passed on:
By unsafe sexual contact with a person who is seropositive;
By receiving infected blood;
By using contaminated injection needles;
From a seropositive mother to an unborn child.The HIV virus cannot be passed on:
By casual contact or just by breathing infected air
By sweat, tears or urine
By mosquito bites or other insects
