Supporting hockey in Uganda
with Youth Sport Uganda
Since 2006, Youth Sport Uganda (YSU) has helped thousands of
children from different social, economic and religious backgrounds
form friendships and, crucially, learn important health issues including HIV/AIDs awareness. YSU has continued to promote health and education messages to children across the country. YSU has turned
its simple sports programmes into ‘sport in development’ initiatives. Thus it has been able to promote inclusion in sports for girls to help them stay in school by building their pride and athleticism in order
that they are better informed to avoid, for example, teen pregnancy.
YSU runs sports programs for boys and girls from impoverished backgrounds, providing stability, opportunity and a chance for youth
to excel. Lycan Hockey provide sticks and hockey equipment so that
the kids are able to experience the great game we all play and love.
