Description

Emerge Kids in Sports provides and support young people to play organized sports and access to leadership skills programs. Many Children faces challenges of growing up in communities plagued with poverty, preventable crime, thus involving them in "Negative Recreations". We believe to help improve their self esteem and confidence, leadership skills and other important life skills through our programs. Our dedicated team of volunteers and staff are on the ground and help achieve long-lasting community benefits

Vision

We have a vision to ensure that every child, regardless of ability is involved in sports at an early age and that no child is EVER left watching from the sidelines simply because their family couldn't afford the cost. Some parents does not know the benefits of kids participating in organized sports at an early age, we therefore will educate them about this.

Mission

The mission of Emerge Kids in Sports is to create resources in communities, increasing the participation rates of children in sports and youth -led programs regardless of ability, religion and financial situation, developing a strong and healthy community.

Areas of Focus

We Focus on Youth Development.Our programs give children and youth an opportunity to experience positive benefits of after school programs and leadership clubs. We nurture the potential of every child.

We empower the next generation.Through the provision of youth-led volunteer opportunities and leadership experiences in our leadership clubs, we allow them design projects that will benefit the community and we support them to do it. Our youth leadership programs invest in the future by reaching out to young people..

We serve local communities – and protect the planet.From performing hands-on community work and service projects and lots more, our Community and Environment programs improve our communities – and protect the environment.

Goals

The following principles guide our activities:

  • The inclusion of ALL children regardless of ability in sport;
  • Children and adults leading in healthy environments, active lifestyles;
  • The community working together to assist children;
  • Working to foster activities that inspire strong life skills (i.e., team play, fair play, and self-esteem); and
  • Form Emerge Kids for Sports Chapters all over Ghana and Abroad
