Project Details

The Sports For Change Foundation in Cape Coast takes on interns and volunteers who can teach football, handball, volleyball, basketball, taekwondo, athletics, swimming and other sports at three different schools, and support children and young people at competitions. People with special needs are also trained in sports.
Sports For Change provides students of St. Monica 's School (Catholic school for girls, 1st - 6th grade), Christ Church School (1st - 9th grade) and a school in Abreshia (1st - 9th grade), afternoon sports activities including football, basketball, handball, volleyball, swimming lessons and Taekwondo. The trainings are held from Monday to Friday, 2.00 p.m. onwards. Athletics will also be offered as soon they get a suitable, qualified trainer. The training is held for boys and girls. In addition, the Sports For Change Foundation works with a school for children with special needs. 

About a hundred children from each school take part in the program offered by the Sports For Change Foundation. The sports activities take place on the school grounds; for the swimming lessons, students go to the swimming pools of some of the hotels in Cape Coast. In addition to the actual training, there are also "theory" lessons on body functions, body hygiene, disease and prevention, healthy diet, proper exercise, etc.

Robert Ayensu (MA Physical Education and Business Communication) aka “Nana” to all, and his team of five coaches, an administrator and seven Ghanaian volunteers, work tirelessly to expand the range of sport offered. He founded this NGO early this year in March. The number of participants is growing rapidly. Nana’s program is supported by the initiative, "FIFA Football For Hope", which uses the sport to promote social responsibility. Sport can change and fundamentally improve the lives of disadvantaged children. Their self-expression and self-confidence would be strengthened and improved by the solidarity, fair play and conflict resolution in any kind of sport, as well as the interaction with and the integration of other people with disabilities. The Sports For Change Foundation would like to offer their training to as many children as possible and support them in developing their talents. The employees also use for reconnaissance training, The Education Talks, which are an important part of the program and run in the communities to provide basic knowledge about disease prevention and a healthy lifestyle, which is improved by food and exercise.
Those who desire to teach in a primary school in Cape Coast, can also teach English, mathematics, science and computers in addition to sports training.
