A Day with Sport – The Bridge

Sport – The Bridge is a swiss-based NGO working in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We combine sport and pedagogy in order to re-integrate street children into their families and the public school. Our main sports are football and karate. Street children of Addis Ababa receive a home during the day relieving them from the pressure of the street and giving them the opportunity to do sport and to play around like children do. By the special mean of the KRAFTmodel we can use the framework of sport in order to transfer pedagogical messages to the children and thus foster their personal development. For every child and with the respective family members, we’re trying to find a sustainable solution such that the child is sleeping at home again. If successful, the child will start school at the next possible date. We furthermore deliver services concerning health, hygiene, nutrition and literacy. By this, yearly re-integrate more than 60 children into their families and the public school. For these children we offer a follow-up programme lasting up to four additional years.
