Tackle Africa


Here we have a few words from Charlie Gamble, CEO of TackleAfrica.

Since 2012 Generation Press have been supporting TackleAfrica. A Brighton based charity that delivers sexual health and HIV programmes through football coaching across Africa. Generation Press first entered a team into TackleAfrica’s annual 12 hour Brighton football marathon 7 years ago in 2012. They have completed the challenge every year since! More recently, with Paul at the helm, Generation Press’s cycling team have also been road racing and raising more vital funds for the work of TackleAfrica.

Paul Hewitt, MD of Generation Press said they are very proud to have raised over £33,000 for the Brighton based charity, and that they are looking forward to continuing to support the excellent work of TackleAfrica.

Our partnership with Generation Press is extremely important to us at TackleAfrica and we can’t thank them enough for their commitment and the huge amount of money they have raised for our work over the years. We now work across 10 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa reaching 15,000 young people every week and that would not have been possible without the support from Paul and the Generation Press team.

Paul Says—

On the hottest day of the year (always I swear) you’ll find us tearing around for 12 hours of no-stop tournament football fun. All abilities, friends, families and colleagues all turn up to make this day one to remember.

Over the last few years we have been involved with and learnt about TackleAfrica. Their work is inspiring, their ideas on how to pass knowledge of sexual health onto the kids through football blows our minds. Their simple idea has reached so many kids and their achievement is astounding. Well done TackleAfrica.
