We have now worked alongside Youth Sports Uganda for 4 years. Our partnership with Youth Sports Uganda allows us to host sport camps at Lugogo Sports Field (Kampala) and at Schools all over Uganda. We coach a variety of sports including football, hockey, tennis, and other fun games with the children.
In 2013 our volunteers included a team of students from Liberty University, Lynchburg Virginia who travelled to Uganda to deliver a programme of sports and health promotion alongside Charlene's Project, in partnership with Youth Sports Uganda. Liberty is a Christian University which competes at the highest level of University sports in the U.S.A.
With Charlene's sisters Natalie, Serena and Bethany all students at Liberty, and key players in the hockey team, the University took a keen interest in the story behind Charlene's Project and has been a partner as we continue to seek to bring education.
Hundreds of children came to the camps in Lugogo Sports Ground where hockey sticks, running shoes and other sports equipment were given to many of the schools represented.
Knowing that Youth Sports Uganda will continue to tirelessly work in the area of sports development with the children and Schools involved in this camp is key in ensuring sustainability of this project.
Since this trip in 2013, we have held many other different sport camps for hundreds of children and young people of all different ages and backgrounds. At all of the sport camps which take place at Lugogo Sports Field, all children are fed on behalf of Charlene's Project. It is always a great day for the children and the team members of Charlene's Project.
We here at Charlene's Project believe sport can give the the young people of Uganda an opportunity to excel in sport and learn important skills which they can use in their life. We also believe sport can give the young people of Uganda the opportunity to have fun and forget the worries which they face in their everyday struggles.
