Volunteer in Uganda in our football coaching volunteer project. Since sports have the powerful ability to draw people together, even beyond international borders, they help to build strong communities. After all, sports greatly contributes to the creation of healthier, happier individuals.
Sports also can offer a route out of poverty and a path of excitement and promise to many young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Sports Activities are a Great Opportunity for the Children to Come Together and Grow Personally
However, for children in deprived communities, opportunities to participate in creative games are rare, due to lack of resources to provide specialized sports and physical education teachers. As a sports development volunteer, you can give these disadvantaged teenagers the chance to discover new sports and enjoy getting fit, encouraging them to uncover their potential. IKPVA Uganda’s sports coaching projects offer participants with both valuable life-changing experience and an opportunity to make a difference.
Volunteers on sports development in Uganda interact daily with local students, children, young adults, and their leaders in schools, sports clubs and youth organizations. They design and organize various sports activities like:
- track and field
- conduct physical education lessons
- coach local games such as volleyball, football, basketball, netball, athletics
- organize sports tournaments among different schools or local clubs
- bring fresh ideas and introduce new sports and games
- promote healthy sports habits and serve as positive role models for young, impressionable individuals
Please note: volunteers do not need to be qualified or experienced to participate on these projects, however volunteers with special expertise are highly preferred.
