Change the lives of children and teenagers in Uganda through sports education and cultural exchange. In many schools across rural Uganda, the children do not get the opportunity to practice structured sports due to a significant lack of trainers and coaches. During this program, you will get to enrich the lives of these students by promoting a healthy lifestyle, introducing a structure and allowing the children and teenagers to develop life skills that will help them greatly in the future.
During this program, you will be teaching in the local schools and/or community areas. You are free to choose the sport you will be teaching, however, you may have to get creative, as equipment is often limited! You will be in charge of developing your own lessons, but please keep in mind that the class should be both technical and practical.
The benefits of this are not solely in the physical education, though. The children benefit greatly from the English practice and cultural exchange you provide just by being here. In many of the small Ugandan villages, the children rarely, if ever, get exposure to people from different countries and cultures.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to change the lives of Uganda’s youth through physical education, English practice and developing leadership and team working skills. All important skills that will help them for the rest of their lives, and in securing future careers.The primary aim of this project is to introduce proper sports training in rural schools. Moreover, we aim to improve the English skills of the students through intercultural exchange.
