Zimbabwean teacher and coach Derek Chiwara discusses his experiences of contributing to the charity’s goals and what he learnt along his journey
“In Malawi, working with children with disabilities and making them believe in themselves and allowing them to freely express themselves without holding back was a highlight for me.”
Derek learned to value the athlete and appreciate his or her input on the field. He talks about the enthusiasm of the children he coached and their inspirational willingness to learn.
“I was privileged to meet a lovely group of coaches with whom I worked in Malawi and Zambia. Each and every coach was special in their own way. I learnt a lot of valuable things from them and became to understand how they operated (coaching children) and was amazed by their professionalism. We created a ‘family bond’ that still exists today.”
“Working with kids from different backgrounds and those of different abilities has had a direct impact on my life and how I relate and operate as a coach.”
