SEATTLE, WA, 7/2/12 — the Global Team announces partnership with ARISE Foundation Uganda
the Global Team is proud to announce an exciting partnership with ARISE Foundation Uganda, a non-profit organization providing life skills and staff training to at-risk youth and the adults who care for them.
A pilot program is to be launched Fall 2012 with plans of reaching 15 coaches and 100 Ugandan youth, with the future goal of expanding services to the total ARISE youth population of over 500 youth by the Spring/Summer of 2013. In preparation for the launch this fall, the Global Team will provide coach’s training on the Global Team curriculum methods, non-formal education and education through soccer techniques. ARISE Foundation will also receive Coaching Manuals, Player Handbooks and Educational textbooks for use in the program.
To kickoff this partnership, the Global Team is organizing the ‘Play with Purpose Cup,’ a fundraising tournament to be held August 11,12th at the Pacific Sports Complex in Tacoma, WA. More details on this fundraiser will be released shortly.
the Global Team is a fiscally-sponsored 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides primary education through the sport of soccer. Enhanced by the power of the global game, the Global Team employs a typical soccer model to provide capacity development, education + soccer curriculum and mentor training to our local partners throughout the world. Our vision is for every child to have access to a creative education through soccer in supportive, sustainable communities.
“All children deserve access to an inspiring educational experience,” says Heather Turney, Founder/Director of the Global Team. “We at the Global Team are excited to embark on this international partnership with ARISE Foundation Uganda and to achieve our mutual goal of provide youth with the skills to reach their highest potential.”
”On behalf of ARISE Foundation Uganda, I am overjoyed to be partnering with the Global Team,” says Jude Nyanzi, Founder/ARISE Foundation Uganda. “With this partnership, we are confident that the Global Team’s education through soccer program will have a great impact to the youth of Uganda and increase the continued development and success of our country.”
