The fountain Good Sport Community Foundation (FOGS) is a Zambia based youth led NGO, founded in 2017 and working for the promotion of childrens rights and survival in the region. FOGS through sport seeks to inspire, coordinate, mobilize and connect young people and provide with effective solutions to address the issue of Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) for adolescents and the youths, as well as offering a network of support for key populations. We operate in the headquarters in Mpika district.
In todays society, many children experience abuse every day from both strangers and people they trust, which threatens their survival, development and participation in society. It is in the recognition of these threats to children that Fountain of Good Sport Foundation has been formed.
The mission of the group is to work for the improvement of the plight of children, young people and women in Zambia through sport. The activities are not limited to sport but include information sharing, training, education and innovative early interventions bridging the gap between theory, policy and practice.
This action has mobilised the first ever community sports club as a tool intended to raise awareness and educate adolescents and communities (boys and girls) on issues affecting them.
The key activities include; Sporting activities such as volleyball, handball, football, basketball, athletics, traditional games and indoor games so that they stay away from bad behaviors such as early indulgence in sexual activities, drugs, alcohol and become self-empowered, confident and able to make sound decisions about their lifestyle and choose the career pathway of their choice with education and know their rights.
