Volunteer Zambia is delivered in partnership with Zambian NGO Sport in Action and the 7 Wallace Group Universities.

 

Over the last ten years, the Wallace Group, in partnership with UK Sport, has been sending specialist sports and media students out to Lusaka (the capital of Zambia) to work with local volunteers, delivering school PE lessons, community sports programmes and health awareness workshops within the deprived areas of the city’s compounds.

 

Through the provision of sport, The International Development Through Excellence Leaders and Sports (IDEALS) Project aims to focus on the positive impact that sport can have upon impoverished communities, which are often affected by high levels of unemployment, crime, exclusion and many health risks, including HIV and AIDS. By encouraging children and young people to attend sessions, it is hoped that sport can be used as a medium to develop motivation, self-development and self-reliance and help improve the quality of their lives.
