Renard named Alive & Kicking ambassador



Zambia coach Herve Renard has been appointed ambassador for social enterprise Alive & Kicking, officials announced on Tuesday.

Alive & Kicking manufactures sports balls for children, create jobs for adults and promote health education through sport. The French coach and the company say the new partnership can improve the quality of young soccer players in Zambia.

“That’s why I’ve partnered with Alive & Kicking, because they are committed to helping grassroots development through the provision of affordable and durable balls,” Renard said in a press release.

The reigning Caf Coach of the Year will be providing his services free of charge, according to Alive & Kicking, which currently operates in Kenya, Zambia and Ghana.

Renard recently allocated a donation of balls to the Zambian Carnivore Program to assist in the country’s ongoing fight for animal conservation.

“It has been our pleasure to host Herve at our stitching centre at Zamleather, he has shown an incredible interest in what we do, and we are very grateful for his time. We look forward to working together in the future,” said Alive & Kicking Sales Manager Scott Sloan.

Zambia, who won the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations, failed to progress from the group stage at the ongoing edition in South Africa.
