COACH FOOTBALL TO UNDERPRIVILEGED CHILDREN IN JA-ELA
Volunteering, Gap Year or Career Break in Sri Lanka
Our Football Coaching programme runs in schools in Ja-Ela, on the western side of Sri Lanka. You’ll work with disadvantaged children who benefit enormously from your help!

The schools have about 400 to 500 pupils aged 5 to 16 years old, with approx. 35 per class. Their English is generally poor, so by coaching football, you’re also giving them a chance to improve their English in an informal setting.

You’ll coach all age groups, from 6 to 18 years old. You don’t need any qualifications to do this project.
