WHISCA SPORTS PROGRAM

 

WHISCA’s Sports Program provides the youth of Musembe and surrounding villages the opportunity to come together and learn to play a particular sport in an organized setting. In addition to playing sports, the participants gain valuable lessons in teamwork, self-esteem, and health.

 

The first league in the Sports Program is the Girls’ Soccer League, for girls aged 10-16 years old. With very few opportunities or resources available for young girls to be active and play, the program provides them with a safe and welcoming environment to explore their athletic talents, and partake in the joys of childhood for a few hours each week.

 

The Sports Program will be expanding with the addition of separate basketball, volleyball, bocce, and soccer leagues for the young boys, girls, men and women of Musembe village.
