Sports Program (Sports Clinic)
The PDI Sports (Sports Clinic) program was initiated by Dezi Natala Zaale and supported by the Lehigh University interns. Launched in 2017, the Sports Program aims to bring organized sports to youth in Bududa district to teach them values such as discipline, hard work, leadership, and sportsmanship. The program incorporated with life skills training, economic strengthening through the PDI Village Savings and Loan Associations (VSLA) program, reproductive health education, and environmental conservation aims to support young people in living a productive life and becoming change agents in the community.
Since its launch, we have worked with two local primary schools, Buwali and Bubiita primary schools, and Bubiita in and out of school youth. In 2018, the program was scaled up to include Bumwalye Primary school.
