Walmer Township is the home to 70.000 people dealing with poverty, child neglect, alcohol abuse and a high unemployment rate as some of the many difficult challenges you will be facing here, but at the same moment you will experience it is not all sad. The community is very welcoming and loves having volunteers showing an interest in their way of life.
Do you enjoy sports and exercise and love working with children and young people? Help a local team of sports enthusiasts to teach sports at schools, train basketball or give swimming lessons to children and promote a healthy and active lifestyle! Supervised internships for students of Sports and Physical Education are also possible here.
Immerse yourself in the local community as an sports coach or volunteer English teacher - or both! Go into local schools with a group of volunteers to help children develop their knowledge, sporting abilities, motivation and enjoyment. Sports include football, tennis, swimming, rugby, cricket, netball and basketball.
Is football your passion and would you like to get involved in a social project? Then you have the opportunity to support children and young people and give them a very special self-confidence with the help of football. Our partner project has set itself the task of working together with schools from poorer areas and giving them a meaningful task and a better future through football training.
