Children and Sports


Children and Sports

Play helps a child to grow in ways including memory, self-regulation, oral language, and recognizing symbols as well as increased social development. The more opportunities children have to interact with their peers, to learn new skills, learn about themselves and discover new games, the better.


Support Sports

help2kids has been supporting sports for children. We provide a friendly and conducive environment for children to play from early childhood to secondary school teenagers. We have trained caregivers and teachers with the help of volunteers who have been supportive in assisting children to develop social and help in self-recognition through playing.



With the help of private sponsors, we have been able to establish two football teams: an under 15 boys’ team and an under 15 girls’ team, both representing the school under the banner of ‘The Rainbows.’ Both teams have a coach who is assisted by help2kids’ volunteers interested in coaching football. By establishing the football team, we aim to allow our kids space to express their energy positively to develop leadership skills and a sense of teamwork. Look at our kids in action!


Sports Events

For three years now help2kids has been organizing an annual sports event in Dar es Salaam, aimed at connecting with the local community and primary school around.  The event is a one-day football tournament, which pits teams from local schools and international schools against one another for a chance to win a top prize.

The goal is to provide a fun and safe event for kids in Dar es Salaam while creating stronger ties to the community and networking with nearby schools.
