Research shows that children's cognitive development can be positively affected by involving them in different physical activites.
Childreach Nepal, along with Coaches Across Continents and other partners, are leading the way to create examples of how sports can be used to learn about various social issues and how children can deal with these issues.
Only 3 in every 10 children in Nepal are given the opportunity to play sport. We understand the value that sport, particularly team sport, plays in providing a physical and social outlet for young people, as well as a chance for personal development and the formation of new friendships. The sporting activity we engage children with is designed to focus on team-work and fair play, and provides children with active opportunities for personal development. Our volunteer training programme provides important leadership and team-building development for our local volunteers that manage the sports clubs on a day-to-day basis. The ultimate aim of the Sports Initiative is to see the boys' and girls' sports clubs that we set up as integrated components of local communities. These clubs will also become important access routes for attracting investment into the local community as a whole.
