Project Description

Join with us to volunteer helping in schools by teaching children new sports and making it fun for them and yourself at the same time. There are many mental and physical benefits that regular exercise provides children, it also teaches many life-skills such as the importance of teamwork and communication.  Our Sports Programs are located in different areas of Kenya, you could be living with a host family or a volunteer house while learning the cultures and way of life as a Kenyan. You might even want to bring your ice skates!


  • Be athletic and in good shape to be able to keep up daily exercise with he children 
  • Be prepared to commit to volunteering for a minimum of 4 weeks
  • Be prepared to build and create a training schedule for the children
  • Be self motivated and goal orientated
  • Some experience coaching children is preferred but not required


Sport is a fantastic way for children to develop skills & coordination while having fun at the same time! Being able to support Kenyan children on their journeys through childhood is an unforgettable experience for all.

Our Goal

Our goal for the sport education is to help these children get daily exercise, most special needs children do not like to be active so by having you there willing to help them be active, we can give them something that is lacking in their daily lives.  Keeping them active and educated about sports is something we all believe in at Because ALL Children Matter.


  • Learn Swahili from the children
  • Safari in Kenya
  • Make a difference in the life of a child
  • Make memories that will last a lifetime
  • Form friendships that will last forever

Playing sports and getting to go ice skating in Kenya was a bonus on an already memorable experience.

  • A volunteers work day on this project will generally last between 4 and 6 hours and while we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:
  • On this program you may go ice skating and you may be asked to create a teaching plan for the children
  • 7:00 – 7:30am Breakfast at the volunteer house
  • 7:30 – 8:00am Walk or bus to your project site
  • A tea break and lunch break will be fitted in during the day, but often the timing of breaks will change based on the needs of the local staff and number of volunteers on hand.
  • 3:30pm Walk or bus back to the accommodation
  • Evenings Volunteers are free to explore the local area, check out the markets and shopping or just hangout.
