Train our local boys and girls soccer teams and support them during the matches on weekends.
Dream Africa Care Foundation (DACF) started the soccer project in 2010 with some volunteers who were interested in sports. This was to occupy children after school instead of making them loiter about in the society. This project was mainly for boys but later in 2014, Dream Africa partnered with Believe Elijah (Coach Little) who is a refreree and coach by profession and has a lot of passion for sports but needed support. DACF agreed that coach little coaches the team. He is also the project co-ordinator. Coach Little also introduced a girls team
The sports project trains children and teenagers both, males and females who have the passion for soccer and other sports activities. These children meet at a pack where they are coached by local and foreign volunteers in playing football and other sports activities. They play football matches in different towns and cities.
The project has about 200 boys and 120 girls who are grouped by ages. The team has the under 7, under 9, under 11, under 13, under 15 and under 17. The age range is between 6 years to 19 years.
In this project you will help to train the teams and implement training sessions to improve their talent. On weekends you can go with them to matches in different towns and cities in Ghana to support them.
As a volunteer you will assist the coach with training the kids. You can implement special training methods if you want to. On weekends you can travel with the team to matches all over Ghana. The training takes place in the afternoon from Tuesday to Friday.
Ghana has so much to offer to volunteers, with its rich culture, festivals, food, art & craft centers, castles & forts, long sandy beaches, national parks, waterfalls, rain forest and other interesting places to visit.
The DACF management organizes several trips to discover Ghana’s culture, nature and most relaxing places.
Our driver and a staff member will pick you up from the airport and bring you to the place where you will stay. You will visit the project together with other experienced volunteers on the next workday.
You can choose to stay with a local host family or stay in our volunteer house. It depends on the location where you want to be placed. Our main location is the volunteer house in Accra, where you will be living with around 16 other volunteers from all over the world. We have four bedrooms with two bunk beds each and two shared bathrooms. The volunteer house is located in a very safe area in Ghana.
We have a cook in the volunteer house who prepares three meals a day for all the volunteers. We will prepare special food for you, if you have to follow a special diet. The food is mostly western, but we also offer local dishes to our volunteers. If you are placed in a host family you might have more local dishes.
