The S.E.L.F. Project was initially founded conducting local and global service projects to promote participation in sports and physical activity especially with girls and women in 2008. Trips abroad consisted of students who were diverse ethnically and socio-economically. During trips abroad, sports clinics were conducted to promote proficiency in the sport/activity, leadership, self-esteem and teamwork for both S.E.L.F. participants and those being taught. These projects also included the donation of sports equipment and the construction of basketball/multi-purpose courts, volleyball courts and soccer fields. Workshops were held with teachers and coaches, presenting information on the value of lesson planning, practice planning, coaching techniques and strategies and the important role coaches play in a young person’s life.
Solar Panels in Zimbabwe
We are working to install solar panels at Majiji High School, an improvised boarding school located in the Bubi District, a rural community outside of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Majiji has been without power for over a year now which has led to numerous setbacks. By investing in solar panels, Majiji High School will have a guaranteed power source that is completely self-sufficient. The benefits of the solar panels will immediately provide: light for evening study sessions and night classes, a wifi hub for teachers to research and create lesson plans, and power to charge electronic devices, printers, copying machines and audio-visual equipment to be used during class.
Colleges and Universities Participants Attended
If you have a sports equipment donation to make or a financial donation, please call or email us. We look forward to hearing from you.
