Project Overview

The KaziBantu project is a specially tailored school-based intervention programme aimed at consolidating the practice of physical education and ensuring the physical literacy and healthy active living of school children and teachers. The KaziBantu Project (Kazi – active, Bantu – people: KaziBantu – Active  People)  is  dedicated  to  creating  long-lasting

positive changes in health, and to providing opportunities for physical activity, by implementing a multi-faceted approach to address the health problems faced within disadvantaged settings in low- and middle-income countries. This will be achieved through two programmes:  KaziKidz and KaziHealth.
