Full description

The Sports Charity Mwanza is a Tanzanian NGO with the mission to create a sustainable sports infrastructure in Mwanza. So far, organized club structures and the necessary infrastructure have been missing. Together with the City Council and regional sports associations our Tanzanian and International team raises funds, builds sports grounds, initiates the founding of sports clubs and equips the clubs with essential training equipment. Furthermore, coaches get trained holistically and workshops are held to teach kids, adolescents and young adults important life skills.
