I have always loved football, so to combine my love of football and travel/adventure, Aspect Africa and their community sports project seemed ideal for me. The programme is well run with their trained community coaches, the materials they use for the educational games are well made and focus on great topics, HIV/AIDs, conservation, gender equality. Their material is made in conjunction with an organisation called Coaches Across Continents whose focus is on sport for social impact.
The activities were fun, seeing elephants will never bore me, the bush was very dry because of limited rains but there were still plenty of animals to see. Living in with a host family was great if not nervy at the start, to see life being lived on a daily bases was an eye-opener and one I would highly recommend.
