The Germany Federal Office of International Sports Promotion (ISP) gave sports equipment to Kawale Football Club under-14 and under-17 teams at a ceremony held at Nanjati Primary School.
The donation was made through the Germany Embassy in Lilongwe on Tuesday.
Items including sets of uniforms and balls were given to the school by deputy head of mission Johannes Scharlau. Scharlau was accompanied by cultural and development cooperation officer Fitina Khonje.
In the past, the Germany Embassy has targeted community day secondary schools in the country as beneficiaries of the sports equipment.
â€œThe aim of ISP is to advance the development of amateur and popular sports in the developing countries. KFC use football to shape the character of the youth through HIV and other health-related awareness. We were touched and decided to assist,â€ said Scharlau.
The embassy has also agreed to donate sports equipment to a netball team after receiving a request from KFC coordinator Edward Mponda.
Scharlau said he was touched by the fact that sports encourages team spirit, mutual respect, tolerance and fairness among the youth.
â€œThese characters will in turn shape the youngsters into responsible adults in society and we are proud to be associated with that,â€ he said.
Mponda thanked the Germany Government for the gift.
â€œWe hand no balls and no decent uniforms. We are indebted to your government for responding to our request. These youths come from poor families and find a common interest in sports. We thought we could use sports to teach these youngsters life skills and we involved Banja La Mtsogolo (BML) and Napham to assist in counselling,â€ said Mponda.
The ceremony was also attended by traditional leaders, Nanjati Primary School management and BML youth service provider officer Julie Phiri.
