Improving children's lives in Africa through Sport!
The Kids League Uganda works towards a world where all young people have the opportunity to improve their lives through access to sports and recreation.
Since 2003, The Kids League has helped around one hundred thousand children from different social, economic and religious backgrounds form friendships and, crucially, learn important health issues including HIV/AIDs awareness.
Amongst The Kids League’s first projects was to help promote peace and reconciliation in Uganda’s northern district of Gulu which was then in the final stages of the country’s 20 year civil rebel conflict. In 2003, the Lords Resistance Army, comprising mainly child soldiers abducted from their homes, was then still active in the region and by providing integrated team sports leagues for all children, The Kids League helped bring communities together and reconcile and reintegrate the former abductees with their former adversaries.
The Kids League has continued to promote health and education messages to children across northern Uganda. It has brought this experience back to Kampala to turn its former simple sports leagues into ‘sport in development’ initiatives. Thus it has been able to promote inclusion in sports for girls to help them stay in school by building their pride and athleticism in order that they are better informed to avoid, for example, teen pregnancy.
The Kids League’s most recent initiative is to help inform families and communities that young people with disabilities can make significant, positive contributions to society. The Kids League partners, APAID, are training coaches in adapted sports and in the process are able to offer team sports designed to showcase their talent, improve esteem and in some cases expose children to a world previously inaccesible.
Some of our future plans
TKL plan to develop more programmes across Uganda to increase opportunities for children to access sports, provide opportunities for those children who are talented to showcase their talent as well as promote inclusion for all children irrespective of gender or ability.
The construction of a Sports Centre to facilitate our activities, offer employment and training opportunities to adults and help to generate income locally is a long term ambition!
