IESC believes that playing sports is of great value. There are obvious health benefits, but sports bring social benefits as well. It promotes teamwork, discipline and cooperation. Sports can also bring communities together as they play together and stand untied in the support of their team. Therefore, IESC has organized and hosted many volunteer coaching clinics.
We work closely the the Ministries of Education and Ministries of Information, Culture, and Sport in Kenya and Tanzania. The goal of our clinics is two-fold: teaching basic skills to local school teachers and teaching more advanced skills to local clubs. By conducting these clinics, we seek not only to teach skills but to build individuals and communities.
