SPORTS EVANGELISM: Taking the Gospel to the young and lost has never been the same since we started the Sports Evangelism and Tackling AIDS Through Sport Programs. Sport is hugely popular amongst young people world wide, more so than any other voluntary activity. Sport is therefore credible and attractive way of engaging the attention of young people and providing a platform to both share the Gospel with them and also through which to promote prevention of HIV, de-stigmatization and to encourage the development of important life skills.
THE POWER OF SPORTS IN AFRICA:
A survey carried out in Uganda by British Council to gauge the interests of young people aged 11 to 20, sport was the clear top response, where 88% of young people in Uganda were interested in sport and exercise, and the survey went further to reveal that 89% of boys and 68% of girls reported that they regularly watch it on TV. This makes sport as the most effective tool to reach Young people with Gospel.
Our biggest problem at the moment is lack of funds for coordination that is transport and communication, we have to hire vans for our outreaches which are costly, and unreliable. We do not have sound equipment, and as well we lack sports equipment. We have received previously used sports equipment from our friends and sympathizers from Canada, UK and US. We appeal to Churches, and sports Ministries to donate to us used and new sports equipment, sound system, and funds for coordination of this ministry.
