Recruiting Organization: Ssamba Foundation

Many children in Uganda served don’t have the opportunity to receive proper coaching and they lack basic sports skills. Participants on our Sports Volunteering Project Uganda work with schools and community teams after school. Sports have the power to bring people together. It speaks a universal language and cuts through culture, race and religion.

Through our sports development program in Uganda, we aim at enhancing the physical, social and emotional development of children and youth in Uganda. The program provides at-risk children and youth a safe environment in which they participate in a number of extra-curricular activities.

You can volunteer as a sports coaching instructor of athletics, baseball, basketball, boxing, cricket, football, golf, hockey, martial arts, netball, polo, rugby, surfing, swimming, tennis, ultimate Frisbee, volleyball and more!

Sports coaching volunteers also help coordinate important educational workshops in areas lacking emphasis in general school curricula such as recycling, nutrition, hygiene, and self-esteem. This is a fun project for anyone who loves working with children and youth. The youth are very enthusiastic and always keen to learn, play, and interact with volunteers.

During the sports development program, we emphasize important core values like mutual respect, trust, fair-play and self-esteem as well as sportsmanship, teamwork, and leadership.
