Education outreach program
The “player for live initiativer Uganda” (PFLIU), education outreach program is a program established to help out the kids with scholastic materials throughout thier academic year, we currently sponsor 5 children in three primary schools that’s Naguru Infant School with scholastic materials such as books, pens, geometry sets, school uniforms and school shoes. Each member is supported with these materials through his or her academics year. This system is aimed at instilling the value of hard work, independent thought and commitment. If these crucial values are encouraged at this earlier stage we believe they will stay with them throughout their lives.
We believe that sport is a vital component of the development of young people, offering both physical and mental benefits.
Our sports programme has become somewhat of a flagship for our organisation due to the numerous successes we have enjoyed. Our program consists of provision of equipment, coaching and development programs. We are currently Running, Tennis, Cricket, Soccer and Lacrosse activities in three different schools that’s Naguru infant School f in Nakawa division, Kampala district with over one hundred (100+) kids benefitting from the program. Other aspects of our programme consist of holiday clinics, specifically aimed at juniors with the sole objective of promoting sports and developing Uganda’s next generation of tennis players.

The value of education is undisputed allover the world. However, there remain thousands of children in most countries across the world that are still denied the right. Uganda is one of those countries. Even with commendable efforts by the government to reduce the barriers of entry, the costs of education means countless children still go through their childhood without going to school. Our reasoning is straightforward. We believe every child has the right to an education. Simple. However, we don’t just believe they have a right to any old education; they have a right to a high quality, uninterrupted and comprehensive education. An education that really is, as one of our members so brilliantly described, ‘a passport to a better future.

Sport is one of the most powerful development tools there is when it comes to young people.
Its transformative power, its ability to unite, empower and teach makes it an invaluable aspect of any childhood.
When the values and lessons that come from sport are set against a backdrop of poverty and inequality they only become more critical.
