Eve Sports Academy works with the community to address challenges faced by kids in the city. The city of can no longer afford to provide reactional services to the young children of Mutare. The aim of Eve Sports Academy is to support the children in adopting techniques and skills in sports which are essential for their personal development as well as a healthy lifestyle. Eve Sports Academy have started creating space in which people can learn adapted techniques and methods that improve the quality of community life through sports, especially the disadvantaged members of the community.

The idea of this program is to accord children from the city of Mutare and the surroundings communities with hands on sports training, so that the beneficiary can be self-reliant. The Sports Academy also addresses issues of community development through sound sports management. Volunteers will work together with the communities in crafting strategies which have the capacity to achieve identify talent amongst the beneficiaries as well as the surrounding communities and beyond. Volunteers will also have an opportunity to engage in indoor and outdoor games with the beneficiaries. It is basically an opportunity for international volunteers to appreciate local initiatives by the surrounding communities in their humble initiative to use sports as a vehicle to promote community development.Not Specified
