TAFIKA and Sport

At TAFIKA - we are so proud of our sports men and women By April 2023 ..


  • Multiple girls now selected for Under 17 National Netball Team

  • Multiple  boys now selected for the Under 17 National Football Team.

  • District Champions of Netball

  • Under 14 boys football team currently best team in the North.

  • Now 201 teams in the north of Malawi are in the academy.


Our goal is to build a centre of excellence for youth in the north of Malawi.



TAFIKA has been working with sports since 1999. We strongly believe that sport offers young girls, boys, men and women the chance to work together and be part of a successful team. 


There are many benefits of sport including:

Teaching about teamwork

Keeping young minds occupied

Physical health

Skills development 

At TAFIKA we have developed a Sports Academy, this Academy draws from the many local teams we support and gives students (14-20+) the opportunity to progress from a local to a regional team. This in turn creates a feeling of success and local pride in players and the regional TAFIKA team.

Our players often play barefoot without a proper team strip. We need sports equipment, like training shoes for our netball teams, or football boots for our football teams.

Our UK partners are actively collecting pre-loved sports equipment, packaging it up and shipping it out to us in containers using as their shipping partner.

We desperately need funds to pay for the shipping. Just £17.50 can fill a Banana Box full of donated sports shoes (13 pairs to a box), kitting out an entire team in one go.

In 2023 we started a program with Strips4Malawi to find new partners for our teams with an aim of bringing a steady supply of quality sports equipment into Malawi giving our players the things they need to play their very best game.

We want to thank the many organisations like Smalls for All who have donated sports bras for our Netball Teams and the many Scottish based athletics clubs who have donated pre-loved sports shoes so our players don't have to play barefoot. Also, a huge thank you to Kinross Colts for their enthusiasm and donations of football boots. You guys are making our teams dreams come true. If you want to get involved contact our UK partner at
