Now a year into our A League project 55 Level one coaches have been trained to deliver Adapted Sports programmes for children in Kampala. Ten Level 2 Coaches, selected from the most committed of those coaches completing Level 1, have been undergoing training and assessments to reach Level 2 as a Trainer.
During the first year 80 children have been offered sporting opportunities which might never normally have come their way and one lucky girl has been selected to go with her able bodied friends to the Football for Hope Football Festival scheduled to take place alongside the World Cup in South Africa in June/July this year.
This project gives hope and builds aspirations in all children who are disabled showing them that they too can succeed whilst enjoying themselves. The advocacy role they as individuals play in educating their communities about the abilities of children with disabilities, is vast.
In this coming year we hope to reach out into the rural communiites in Uganda's former conflict zone where there are many additional children disabled because of war who could benefit enormously through this project.
