Welcome to the Netball Development Trust website
Netball Development Trust (NDT) is a UK charity that delivers netball at grass roots in less developed countries, allowing children the freedom to play and have fun. We work with schools and projects in the community to help young people to become players, leaders, coaches and officials of the future. We then use netball as a tool to bring communities together, where our partners can deliver 'sexual and reproductive health' awareness.

24 Hour Netball Marathon
We’re very excited to announce that we’ll be taking part in the 24-hour netball marathon hosted by the International Netball Federation and Netfit Netball on Saturday 3rd October.
Our session will be run by the extremely talented Benedicta and our partners Akwaaba Volunteers in Ghana. The session will focus on fitness, skills and fun! Join us from the comfort of your own home via the Netfit Netball Facebook page where the marathon will be streamed live for free.
Together, the INF and Netfit identified three needs within the global netballing community which this event will bridge.
The INF and Netfit are asking for donations in exchange for a Netball e-Notebook which will contain worksheets and session plans to be completed throughout the marathon. 100% of the proceeds will go to the INF to help fund nations affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Super Six selected for full Scholarships
We are delighted to share this Incredible news with you - Six of our NDT Kenya girls have received secondary school scholarships purely based on the netball they have learnt under NDT.
It’s a full scholarship – all their tuition fees are being paid - they just have to pay for their meals, transport and personal items. They left Bungoma county for Katwala High School in Eastern Kenya on 13 Jan 2019.
Netball in Uganda - The Video
Whilst on tour 2018, volunteer Camilla Buchanen prepared a film on behalf of Sky sports, about netball in Uganda and the life of Peace Proscovia. We are delighted that we feature in it, especially as it was shown on SkySports on Tuesday 27th November!
NDT has actively measured our impact across many different areas of our programmes; statistical and anecdotal. We are really proud of the successes and differences the programme has made to date and the impact we are having on children, teachers and volunteers we work with.

Sanitary pad appeal
Girls in Kenya are likely to miss 4 school days a month because of their periods. Without hygienic sanitary pads many are forced not to go to school, and will miss out on playing netball.
NDT is proud to announce that we will be supporting our Kenyan project to buy sanitary pads for the girls in our programme to make their lives easier, healthier and happier. We aim to raise a minimum of £2500 so we can help at least 240 of our netball girls and 16 female coaches to keep playing and training effectively. The money will allow us to give each girl a packet of pads per month."
Your kind donation will help us to make a difference, through netball.
Fundraising Progress Bar - We aim to raise a minimum of £2500.
