Sports teams

In a community where destructive habits like drugs, drinking and violence are prevalent, keeping though busy in something constructive is necessary. Sports teams are usually our first form of contact with the youth which then develops into a larger mentorship program and more access to school sponsorships. We build up and support local coaches who then can reach their own players and mentor them.

Rehma Community Football Tournament

Every year, The Rehma Project sponsors a community wide football tournament bringing together teams from various communities to play. Teams are awarded jerseys, soccer balls, cleats, trophies, and gift vouchers to the local supermarkets. As well, a handful of players are awarded school scholarships based on their performance on the field and in the community. The tournament brings hundreds of youth to the field keeping them out of destructive habits and in the hands of mentors. The tournament is now hosting a girls tournament concurrent with the boys giving equal gender opportunities in a community where gender inequality is still quite prevalent.
