• IMPACT Zimbabwe: The Bulldogs Sports Development Trust

    Nov 25th, 2012:  Bulldogs update:

    The Bulldogs Sports Development Trust started a program in Manhenga, a very rural area outside of Harare, Zimbabwe. CAC taught 90+ future coaches and made it on to national TV as the first foreigners to visit this part of Zim. We are happy to report that following our departure, the Bulldogs Sport Development U13 boys team were invited to participate in the Youth Education Through Sport (YES) Festival for the first time. The YES FESTIVAL was hosted by Zimbabwe Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC), and the theme was “Reverse the HIV/AIDS Tide…..Safeguard the Environment through Sport!!” For the Peer Education Component of the festival, the boys played and taught our CAC HIV games, while wearing our donated jerseys with the CAC logo. See attached pictures!

    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.
