Sports Academy

When you walk through our villages, you can see a love of sports everywhere. From posters in rooms, to casual games in a circle, our kids are always running—and they’re often running after a ball.

Our Sports Academy provides a chance to take a child’s natural love of sports, and teaches them to play at their best with support and guidance from coaches. In basketball and soccer, teams learn to work together, pray together and play together. Above all, it’s a chance to grow in skill and character.

ACROSS THE WATOTO FAMILY, WE’RE SEEING THE POSITIVE IMPACT OF SPORTS

Mothers, in particular, are amazed at the changes in their children and have loved seeing their confidence grow. These children are, in turn, providing a positive influence on other kids both inside and outside of our Watoto villages.

SHOWING OUR KIDS LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE

The coaches are mentors and father-figures to our kids. They work hard to build a culture of respect, and because of this our sports teams are known across Uganda for their positive attitude and the way they serve others.

We’re proud our kids have a reputation for cleaning up the sports pitches before and after matches with teams from other schools. Small actions like these show the potential of our future leaders.
