Ethiopians are well known for their love of athletics and volunteers joining our School Sports in Ethiopia project will help to inspire and develop the sporting skills and techniques of enthusiastic youngsters aged 11 – 16 years old.

Snow-capped mountains, multi-coloured lakes and Lalibela, a place of pilgrimage with churches hewn straight out of the bedrock await you. Welcome to the real Ethiopia – a far cry from the parched and barren land that is portrayed as on the news. This is a vibrant and exciting country, where the locals are very welcoming and always quick with a smile.

Volunteers on this project will be placed in local schools in Addis Ababa, where you are likely to find yourself teaching your own sports classes each day. If you have a passion for a specific sport then you can focus on this, however it important to provide variety and the schools normally offer aerobics, athletics, basketball, football and volleyball.

As a volunteer, your role may include tasks such as assisting with PE lessons, supervising warm ups and cool downs, running sport sessions and organising tournaments.

Additionally on request, volunteers can also spend a few mornings training with a local athletics club and will get a chance to run along some of the most amazing landscapes and see some of the terrific scenery on offer in Ethiopia.
