Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

Volunteer role at the project:

Volunteers are needed to work within the community, coaching a variety of sports to pupils in a rural community school. This is a fantastic opportunity for volunteers who would like to share their love of sport through coaching sessions and activities for children from 6 years old to adults. Volunteers can teach:

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Volleyball
  • Cricket
  • Rounders
  • Netball
  • the children love to learn new sports and games so volunteers are welcome to coach any other sports they have an interest in

The schools in Ghana have very limited sports equipment and really appreciate any donations of sports equipment or kit. Volunteers are not required to have professional sports qualifications, just lots of enthusiasm and a passion for sport!

How the project is making a difference:

The Sports Coaching project has encouraged community wide participation in new sports and created great community spirit. The project has enabled volunteers and schools teachers to act as positive role models for the young men and women by inspiring a passion for sport and increasing self-esteem.

Before the project was launched few women chose to be part of sports team, but with volunteers help there is now an established and successful men’s and women’s football team who compete against local teams.

Why volunteers are needed:

Volunteers are able to provide additional sport coaching sessions, teach new games and new skills which wouldn’t be possible due to the schools limited resources. They are able to share their ideas with the current teachers who can pass on their knowledge to their future pupils.

Although English is the national language of Ghana, the level of English in this area is low since many children speak local tribal languages. All Primary and Secondary school subjects in Ghana are taught in English, so a good understanding of the language is vital for furthering their education. By teaching sport in English volunteers are directly improving education and employment prospects of the pupils and member of the community.
