X-SUBA works with three pulic schools in the communuity. X-SUBA mission is to use sports and play to educate and empower children and youth to overcome the effect of poverty, disease and conflict through talent development and lifeskills education. X-SUBA has taken ground to promote sports and play in these schools.Most schools in the community has only one sports tutor for the whole school of maybe 1500 students, which limits the possibility for children to do sports and exercises during school hours. The reason for our involvement in the schools is to development the co-curiculum activities while empowering our young people through education/lifeskills as a whole. We mostly run three sports in the partner schools and these involve football, basketball tag rugby, netball.We hope to introduce handball as a sport two. However a volunteer can also come up with different alternative sport since we have a vase numbe of children who can always join.
