In Feb 2016 we established a new partnership with X-SUBA Sport 4 Development Uganda with the aim of enhancing netball amongst communities in Jinja, Uganda.
X-SUBA is a non-profit community based organization based in Uganda using sport and play to educate and empower children and youth to overcome the effects of poverty, conflict and disease in disadvantaged communities of Jinja.
In the last 8 months X-SUBA have done some amazing work in partnership with NDT. They have introduced “connection netball play” which happens every Saturday and community netball on Sundays. In these netball play sessions there has been a notable increase in the number of young people, especially girls, joining in. This has also provided a platform for X-SUBA to reach out on their Saturday life sessions discussing sensitive issues about sexual health, HIV and self esteem.
