Sport in general involves various activities. Some of these activities accindentally involve un-intended injuries. Its for this reason we have to equip ourselves with First AID Boxes in all our sports activities & sites to handle such minor injuries. For a donation of US$ 109, you can buy for us 1 First AID Box out of the required 20 First AID Boxes

“Until theirs a vaccine to halt the spread of the HIV Virus or a cure for AIDS, education remains the only social vaccine available to HIV prevention globally”. Africa Youth Ministries Uganda is using Soccer/Netball to mobilize the out of school teens/youth to educate them about the HIV/AIDS scourge. Through “Kicking AIDS out of Uganda” Slogan, Africa Youth Ministries Uganda is equipping young people with sport skills and life skills that will help them to guard against the contracting the deadly HIV virus.
Similarly, Africa Youth Ministries is using sports to meet the emotional needs of AIDS Orphans. One of the greatest effects of the AIDS pandemic is its impact on the psychological and mental health of children who have nursed and lost their parents under traumatic circumstances. The impact of parental death on children is complex and affects the child’s mental health and social energy, and might further result in stunted development of emotional intelligence and life skills. Many of the children worked with since 2003, show psychosomatic disturbances, depression, very low self esteem, disturbed social behaviours, hopelessness, low levels of life skills etc. In times of sadness, remorse and grief, sports can provide AIDS Orphans & adolescents with a sense of hope and normalcy. It can help traumatized children learn to integrate the experience of pain, fear & loss. It can help heal emotional scars, creating a safe environment that enables children and adolescents to express their feelings and build their self esteem, self confidence, and trust. Given that sports activities emphasize participation on a team or in a club, it provide children with skills of team building and goal setting.
Sport form part of an innovative new approach towards youth and HIV prevention. Former Director General of the World Health Organization, Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland describes it in the following terms: “Out of Africa comes a new method of using sport to unite children and youth to form an alliance against the ravages of HIV/AIDS. Infected or not, young people can find strength and information in games and the joy of sports.”
As we continue to develop this program of “Integrating Sport into HIV/AIDS Prevention Programs” we need your generous support both material and financial, for any donation you can kindly contact us on the address below.
Sports Equipments Needed for 2007:
At Africa Youth Ministries Uganda, we believe that every child has a right to play I.e to exercise their physical abilities and talents. We also believe that orphanhood & being out of school does not mean physical inability. Through our various sports programs & activities we aim at harnessing the natural talents such vulnerable children have. Similarly, through play therapy we help such children e.g. AIDS & War orphans overcome their traumatic experiences.
