We work to fight the miscarriages of justice

The tragic story of Ginger Pensulo

A Sporting Chance of After-care aims to utilise the power of sport and the love of it, especially football to help persuade alienated victims of miscarriages of justice back into society. Meanwhile, Proved Innocent demonstrates serious flaws in the provision of after-care and highlights a major change in those provisions

Africa's Goal King

Godfrey ‘Ucar’ Chitalu scored for fun, but Africa’s goal king has been denied the respect he is due. Just 45 when he died in the Gabon Plane Crash, he was on his way to showing that great, even controversial, players, can become great coaches too.
We believe that facts speak for themselves. Chitalu holds two world records – he broke another two as well – his own. He also holds two African Cup of Champions Clubs records, which have yet to be acknowledged. And that is just his phenomenal 1972.
