Sport is recognised as a viable, valuable tool, when working with children. It helps fight depression, aids with better concentration, teaches the fundamentals of teamwork, respect for rules, and can be a great boost to individual confidence. Sport fosters positive peer relationships through teamwork which leads to a greater sense of community. Involvement in sports have been related to higher grades, satisfaction and engagement in school, aspirations for higher education, and lower drop-out rates.
Our sports programmes are based in low income communities where social pressures often result in children leaving school or becoming involved in gangs or substance abuse. The projects provide children with a safe environment with encouragement, mentorship and socialisation.
Sport is a common denominator accross the globe, which enables people to come together. Join us on one of our sports programmes, share your skills and contribute to a new future for underprivileged children.
