SPORTS

Northern Uganda is one of the youngest regions in the world. 85% of our population is 35 and under!

We didn't set out to start sports programming, but few organized sports opportunities exist in Gulu and the demand is huge! So far we have stepped into basketball, volleyball and martial arts. Our sports programming has turned into an effective way to engage the community and impact thousands of lives. 

We need partners to help us continue and expand our programming so more children can have the opportunity to play! We need volunteers to train our athletes, donations of sporting equipment and financial supporters. Check out what Nickole did to sponsor a volleyball tournament! 

Nickole's Birthday Fundraiser

By donating her birthday, Nickole raised $1029.76 in less than a week! This allowed us to organize a national volleyball tournament with prizes, refreshments, trophies and certificates. Check out the video highlights of the tournament below!  

Donating your birthday is easy, contact David at david@worldembrace.org to start your fundraiser!
