Different activities such as football, volleyball and netball can be organized on a regular basis and teams and tournaments established. It is a great way to build up a child’s team spirit, and confidence and matches are organized between other local teams in the area. Volunteers are encouraged to help in the coaching and organization of all types of sports. While football is very popular, if volunteers have a specific sport they wish to teach the children, this is always welcomed and received very well by the children. This project traditionally takes place over weekends and after schools.

We therefore recommend that the volunteer must also be involved in the teaching project or another project to keep them busy. Once you register please inform your program coordinator of what other placement you would like to be involved in. Please understand that this project, more than any of the others requires you to take the initiative to set up activities. You will need to come prepared with an idea of what activities you want to do with the children in the area, and if possible bring some equipment with you (or be able to buy in Uganda if available such as football equipment).
