SPORT Strategy of the Global Youth Developement Project

The Association is working to start sports teams in villages, towns and cities right across Zambia. Through these teams we will be targeting six aspects of life (spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, environmental and physical), aiming to enrich the lives of all those involved. To start off we are aiming to build sport teams in each province of Zambia, each team with its own name.

Why Sport?

Globally 65% of young people under the age of 35 play some form of sport twice a week, with a further 35% engaging in sport once in a week. Seeing as young people already love engaging in sport, it makes sense to use sport as a vehicle for whole person development.

We are working to form different sports teams in villages, towns, cities and provinces. Through these teams we will be targeting the six aspects of life aiming to bring richer life for all those involved. To start off we are aiming to build sport teams in each province of Zambia, each team with its own name. Below you will find the teams name for each province of Zambia.
