This project is for children from severely disadvantaged areas. Mornings are spent developing preschool aged children as well as children who do not attend school. In the afternoons we do various sport projects with the children where we teach and play soccer,netball, cricket and other team sports which not only develops the children but is also a way for the children to be exposed to better role models and to be kept busy which serves an important role in lowering socio-economic problems which are often found in these settlements, such as teenage pregnancy, delinquency, petty crime, and which lowers their chances of getting involved in gangs and negative behavior.
Volunteers will work 5 days a week with the children. Some days volunteers will work a full 8 hours and other days 4 to 5 hours, depending on the needs of the project. The volunteers mornings are spent assisting in one of the schools and the afternoons are spent with the kids teaching them sport.
