Development through sports is a project aiming at providing opportunity for children and young people to gain various skills, experience and knowledge and to become aware of development issues affecting their lives. The project sees sports as an ideal tool for involving children and youths. Sport enables and occupies otherwise idle young people. Also, it provides extra-curricular activities for children after school for their physical growth. The project uses the values of sports as a vehicle for leadership, development, empowerment, stopping gender inequalities, improving education successes, enhancing economic opportunities and social inclusion of marginalized groups such as girls, disabled and youths. These values include team work, respect, decision making, volunteerism, integrity, self esteem, conflict management, and communication skills as vital life skills. The project involves young people of the 10-18 age group, mostly from primary and secondary schools.
Volunteers in this project will be helping in organizing and teaching various sports, games, songs and dances to groups of children and young people. Other activities will include organizing various workshops and youth activities using sports. Activities could be community cleaning, tree planting, sport bonanzas, awareness rising on various issues etc.
Duration of the project: Volunteers can be accepted for a minimum time of 4 weeks and a maximum of 3 months.
