Take advantage of your athletic abilities and knowledge by volunteering to coach sports in Uganda, where netball and soccer are two of the most popular sports. You can also find yourself at a sports coaching clinic where you can teach the game of rugby, a devoted sport that fosters harmony and trust in young players. In Uganda, playing sports can help children learn valuable life skills and improve their health in an enjoyable and efficient way. However, there aren’t many opportunities for sports education in many Ugandan villages. Our sports volunteer initiatives are designed to foster talent and improve the lives of kids from underserved communities.

Youth sports provide exceptional chances for young people to collaborate as a team to solve challenging issues. Together, we can foster the behavioral skills that are essential to a child’s development. It has been demonstrated that increasing physical activity improves a child’s mental and physical health as well as their academic achievement. In addition, youth sports offer an enjoyable and stimulating atmosphere where young people can develop self-assurance and avoid risky pursuits like drug and criminality.

Regrettably, a significant number of children in Uganda lack access to programs that could help them advance their athletic abilities. In Uganda, where communities lack access to the resources required to administer these programs, about 50% of children live in extreme poverty. Many schools in Uganda do not include physical education in their curricula, and those that do frequently have severely underfunded physical education programs.
