    Overview

    In rural Ugandan schools, students don’t have much opportunity to play sports due to the lack of trainers. The teachers often let the students out into the playground as part of their exercise classes, but there is no real proper training.

    During this program, you will teach the children sport in local schools and the community. The class should be both technical and practical. You are free to choose what sport you will be teaching, this could be football, volleyball, basketball, etc. Keep in mind that equipment may be limited, so you will need to be resourceful and get creative!

    Moreover, we aim to improve the English of the students through cultural exchange, which you can help provide!

    Objectives

    • Introduce proper sports training in rural schools while improving the English level of students
    • Give you practical experience in teaching
    • Assist the program staff with extra hands

    Impact

    Volunteer experiences have a direct and positive impact on local communities by injecting money into the local economy through the purchase of food, transportation, and tourism activities. Volunteering is a great way to give back to the comunity and make a difference in the world. Depending on the type of volunteer experience you are interested in, your time can be spent improving educational resources and opportunities, providing medical services to underserved communities, or promoting environmental conservation and sustainable farming techniques.

All participants are expected to be environmentally aware and to use all resources with restraint, especially water, paper, and electricity. You will be expected to clean up after yourself, and to play your part to keep the accommodation neat and organized. There is no WIFI in either location and you will need to purchase a local SIM card in order to access the internet.
