Aims and Objective

The aim of the Sports Projects is to provide access to multiple sports, both traditional and non- traditional, to disadvantaged and underprivileged children in the country.
Our programes not only teaches sporting skills to children who previously had no access to sports training, but also to give them the opportunity to enjoy the challenge of friendly competition, to teach them about sportsmanship and fair play and to help build their confidence and self-esteem in a country where children’s voices have rarely been heard and their rights often ignored.

Why sport?

Why does YMMA value the power of sport? Yes, it is fun, but it is so much more than that! If you volunteer with us, you will see first-hand how a sport can engage children from disadvantaged and difficult backgrounds. Sport has the power to bring youth together in a safe space. It lets youth be young in a place where children’s voices are often ignored and many are forced to grow up much too quickly. Children inherently learn valuable lessons from playing sport, from basic communication skills to teamwork to healthy lifestyles. We believe the power of play and sport can help to drive positive change. This is why sport!
Our programs has developed over the past few years and now we deliver a range of sports to many youth across the island through the strength of our branches. From soccer to badminton to cricket, we are introducing new sports, building new skills and creating new opportunities through sport.
