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! Aims &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.
