|A Sports Coach in Kenya|
|Sports form an integral part of local communities and teams often foster a sense of family and identity. Kenyans are sports mad, particularly for football, and many dream of becoming the next star. Unfortunately proper coaching is often lacking, but with a little push sport can help turn desperate communities into ones which believe. |
Who can volunteer
Volunteering is all about sharing your love and passion to improve the lives of those in need. The most important volunteer abroad skills and qualification is your passion and willingness to help others. However, keep in mind that whether or not you need skills to volunteer abroad really depends on the type of volunteer program you are planning to join.
As a volunteer on our sports programme, you will engage in two primary activities: helping with sport education in a local school, and assisting a community team with training and coaching. Your role in the school will often concentrate on assisting a local teacher with sports and PE lessons, helping to engage the next generation in sport.
