Sports plays a paramount role in many ways. It helps to build and maintain healthy bones, muscles, and joints; helps to control weight and reduce fat; and prevents or delays the development of high blood pressure. African children should be able to access Sports activities, just like children in other countries. And we also know that physical fitness is strongly linked to improved academic achievements.
Thus, Physical activity, and sports positively affect aspects of personal development among young people, such as self-esteem, goal-setting, and leadership. Therefore, it should be a must that each and every African child be assisted by his/her parents teachers or guardians in his/her physical, social, cognitive and educational growth and improvement through physical activities and this should be an African routine.    


We WON!!! Using the computers that Isobel had sent to us from England over the last two years, Louis was able to enter the TIGO competition. It is an ICT competition to help disadvantaged people out of poverty by increasing their ICT skills.  With the money, we have been able to buy new laptops, employ an ICT teacher and build computer stations.
