Village Sports Program in Africa
Art in Tanzania is developing children and youth sports programs in village level in Tanzania. The main focus is on youth football and girls’ sports activities. This program is also part of Children’s Agenda created by NGO coalition of UNICEF and others.
Tanzanian communities are lacking capacities to run children and youth sports programs. Commonly children make their football grounds themselves and play with makeshift balls. Organized Coaching is rare.
Currently, Art in Tanzania is focused on developing youth football. We develop structures for village tournaments and select talented children for more advanced training. Tanzanian sports teachers are voluntarily assisting the program and our task is to develop a proper football education system. We are also developing girls’ teams and diversified coaching of other team sports.
We are also developing Community Training taking place weekends. This is coming more popular in Tanzania and part of the Public Health approach,
Interns help to structure program, to train our Tanzanian coaches, advise about sports in schools, perform coaching activities with the local coaches, and organize tournaments.
Interns are working in a team of international and Tanzanian multi-professional intern teams. Art in Tanzania Sports Team is tutoring this program.
