Saints Sport has been running international volunteering programmes in Africa for over 10 years, primarily in the capital Lusaka and surrounding rural communities.
To continue our commitment to support the important work Sport in Action are undertaking across Zambia, we are delighted to be launching a new project in Livingstone in Southern Province.
In its first year a team of twelve student coaches from Saints Sport will spend six weeks in Zambia helping Sport in Action to provide a practical and theory-based programme of sport and education within three schools:
- Zambezi Primary School (700 pupils)
- Dambwa Primary School (700 pupils)
- SOS Children’s Village
The programme, the first programme of its kind in Livingstone, will seek to strengthen the placement work already taking place in highlighted school catchment areas, to ensure the work Sport in Action are undertaking gains greater reach.
Our ambition is to work with Sport in Action to develop the project across a number of areas, exploiting the expertise and skills from a range of backgrounds, to enhance the current work already being delivered by Zambian teachers and volunteers.
