Zanzibar Volunteers is now sponsoring a children’s football team (real kids) from a nearby village and volunteers practice with the team every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoon in Stone Town. After practice, the volunteers give a 30 minute English lesson, incorporating football terms and ideas into the lessons in order to engage the children.
The Children range in age from 12 - 14 years old. Practice takes place in a field near Darajani in Stone town. A Zanzibar volunteers staff member takes volunteers to practice or more experienced volunteer. This takes place from 4:30pm to 6:30pm. Many volunteers sign up for this project in addition to their morning school projects.
