Uganda Sports Coaching 


LOCATION: Kampala, Uganda

Join Street Child's Sports Coaching Programme and be part of a project providing vulnerable children with a happy, safe space to pursue their talents, form friendships, and develop important teamwork and leadership skills. We are looking for proactive individuals with good tennis, cricket or football skills who would be comfortable coaching and mentoring children, and supporting their development.

This is no ordinary volunteer programme - you will be adding capacity to a leading development NGO that values professionalism and sustainability above all else.  

What will I get out of it?

This experience is the perfect opportunity to develop skills that are key to any future job. 

It's a great way to kick start a career in the development, sports or education sector, as unlike other placements, you will be working within an established organisation that plays a crucial role in creating a safe and fun environment for the children of Kampala.
