• IMPACT Zimbabwe: Sport4Socialisation

    Nov 28th, 2012:  Sport4Socialisation update:
    S4S is a unique program run out of Mutare, Zimbabwe, that works with
    mentally and physically disabled youth and their families. S4S was
    another winner of Beyond Sport, and CAC volunteers spent two weeks in
    Mutare in July, helping the organization rework their curriculum and
    prepare their football team for the Paralympics. S4S has since
    returned from the Danhiko Paralympic Games, where they won 3 gold, 3
    silver, and a bronze medal. They have moved their office to the center
    of town, where they now have their own physiotherapy clinic, and their
    parent support group has expanded its services to making peanut
    butter, sewing, and buying and selling firewood as additional means of
    income. In addition, S4S has partnered with 2 other local
    organizations to play wheelchair basketball on Saturday mornings. They
    are constantly starting new initiatives, and are currently working with
    Coaches Across Continents to design a new curriculum
    for the coming year.

    Volunteers:
    Kevin Harrington, Vas Giahos, Tim Wheaton, Emmy Wheaton, Melanie
    Baskind, Brian Suskiewicz

    We want to thank everyone for all their help this past year.  Coaches
    Across Continents has set company records for the number of programs
    assisted, number of coaches taught, number of children reached, and
    number of communities and countries visited.

    Your efforts have helped change lives and are continuing to improve
    communities. To keep volunteers up to date on how their work continues
    to impact others, we will be sending emails that highlight programs
    from a specific country and their ongoing successes.
