The Sports Education program consists of volunteers working in local schools to broaden children’s knowledge of sports, teach “foreign” sports and games to the children, and educate children on general fitness, health and wellbeing in addition to taking general lessons at the school. It is up to the volunteer to plan lessons and design the teaching of their sports program.

Children are EXTREMELY enthusiastic and willing to learn, however past volunteers have found it important to be prepared if they are to teach the children foreign concepts and ideas (such as a new sport). While football is extremely popular in Africa, many volunteers have found it rewarding to teach the children in the schools different sports (or popular sports from the volunteer’s home country).

If a volunteer wishes to do this, they must plan ahead and often bring the required materials and equipment themselves as it is highly likely this will not be available in local stores and shopping centres. While the volunteer does not require any teaching experience for this program, it is important to note the volunteer may be required to take other classes (such as Math or English).
