A future through hockey
The African Hockey Experience is a fundraising event on behalf of Hockey Dreams Foundation. Hockey Dreams uses hockey as a tool to provide a better future for young coaches. We are convinced that through sport, many people can be reached and entire communities are able to develop in a constructive manner. We enable young people to work on their own future.
A sustainable community
We exchange knowledge and equipment with the coaches and provide them with the educational basis needed to develop themselves on a personal and social level. They have their own projects and they are responsible for them. The coaches run the community!
The coaches receive a small allowance in order to provide basic needs for themselves and their families. In addition, they get the opportunity to finish high school, learn English, acquire computer skills and possibly attend college. Through these educational tools, the coaches develop into young professionals participating in the everyday life of the communities. Through the work they do and the responsibilities and opportunities this comes with, the coaches become role models for their surroundings. This has a positive effect on the entire community.
