Okwawu City Volunteers

  • Marker details
  • Description Okwawu city soccer academy is an organization focused on leveraging sports to create hope for local talent, developing the Obomeng community and twenty sub communities.

    We aim to nurture football talents from the age of 10 to 15 to help them realize their potential. As a nonprofit organization working in Obomeng-kwahu, eastern Ghana, we welcome all volunteers interested in our goals to create community social impact and also give hope to the young football talents.

    Academy players are mostly scouted from football matches in selected areas; Kwahu, Ashanti, Brong Ahafo and the Central Region. Talented but needy kids are selected and enrolled to our sports program with parental agreement.

    We develop academy children through extra-curricular sports activities, field training, fitness coaching, football tactics training and health/Physio training.

    TEACHING VOLUNTEERS

    The teaching volunteer program is designed to allow volunteers to work with local teachers to learn their teaching methods and assist with improving them to enable a long term impact.

    The School stages we currently work with are:
    Junior High School
    Primary
    Opinamang Daycare
    Obomeng ICT information center

    CONSTRUCTION/PAINTING VOLUNTEERS
    In Ghana we lack support for maintaining and building facilities like schools, clinics and water bodies. These buildings sometimes develop cracks, holes in the floor and loose chairs which pose a danger for the children and adults. We seek to fix dilapidated buildings within Obomeng and its villages and ensure there is clean water for adults and children. We also look to build facilities which will help our project and our footballers realize their potential in both sport and life.

    When volunteers help to build and renovate these facilities, they are helping to create a conducive environment for the children to learn and grow. They are also helping us to develop our football project which helps kids reach their full potential.
