Coach Soccer ball with Disadvantaged Children

Project Overview

 If you want to volunteer to coach Soccerball with disadvantaged children, then Tanzania is definitely the right country to be in.

 Soccerball by far is the most popular sport in the Tanzania, especially amongst children. It doesn’t take up much or require fancy equipment, and it’s fast paced and exciting. As with other sports, playing Soccerball is a great way for children to keep healthy and active, and acquire personal attributes that contribute to success in life.

 During the school year, the children who are enrolled in our Child Sponsorship Program adhere to a tight, structured schedule. During the summer school break, there are few organized activities available to keep them constructively occupied. That is why we want to offer the children more activities during their school break and need international volunteers to help pitch in.

 One concern we have is that some parents may place unreasonable work demands on their children during the school break, such as having them resume scavenging work at the dumpsite, labor all day in the fields, or serve as the primary caretaker of their siblings. These are the troublesome parental expectations that earlier led to the children being kept out of school. EAHO works with parents who are financially stressed to help them find other ways to address their problem.

Ebenezer African Hearts is calling for international volunteers to conduct and coach soccerball clinics during the months of April, May and June. We hope to have more than one coach available throughout the clinic period, and if necessary, we may recruit a local teenager with organized soccerball experience to assist. The clinic is open to boys and girls between the ages 7 to 17.

Most of the children you will coach have played some soccerball, but their skill levels will vary greatly. A few fortunate children may have played in leagues sponsored by the (Local District government) office. Some of the children have played on regular courts in their neighborhoods or schools. Others would have being limited to playing street-side, shooting at homemade hoops tied to a post. A few children may have played very little or no soccerball . This wouldn’t be too surprising knowing that the children come from destitute families.
