Aspire to Africa
Aspire Sports are going global!
The Aspire to Africa project was established in 2010.
Its mission is to develop and educate schools and local communities in Africa through physical activity and sport. The project also aims to help develop personal skills such as teamwork, interpersonal abilities and leadership.
We send a team to Africa on an annual basis to work with schools, providing them with sports equipment and educational resources. The Aspire to Africa team will use the equipment and resources, combined with their expertise to educate the teachers and the children of the schools, ensuring that the project creates a lasting legacy that uses sport to develop life changing opportunities.
Children and schools in the UK benefit too! We develop links between the African schools and the schools we work with in the UK and have a policy to invite schools to send their staff on the trip. This helps add a global dimension to their curriculum, broaden pupils' awareness of global issues in a meaningful way and enhance curricular learning.
