Sports Development

Change the lives of disadvantaged children through sports coaching and helping out in their local communities.
This project will change your life as you inspire young children through sport. Soccer is Africa’s most common sporting activity. A good number of young people engage in sporting activities for fun and recreational purposes.

There is however a lot of young people from the grassroots who possess good talent but lack opportunities to attain a living through the natural sporting gift due to lack of professional coaching or training. Soccer today is one of the most paying professions worldwide and a key contributor to the economy of a country. At Afro Edge, we believe that volunteers play a critical role in supporting young people discover their skills and gifts in sports. We facilitate volunteer attachment to established soccer teams in Victoria Falls in the second division to impart their expertise and know how in approaching soccer both as a sport and an enterprise.

Volunteers engage in coaching activities, training youth, scheduling and strategizing. Some of our volunteers have joined us for at least 8 months and have successfully trained and managed teams in collaboration with locals to win trophies and exposing young people to talent in the region. This is why this project is very important to us. Volunteers may be requested to work on certain Saturdays and must be flexible and willing to do so. You are able to choose from full time sports coaching or part time sports coaching plus working with orphans, teaching in schools, teaching dance or helping out in public healthcare.
