NGD Sports

The NGD Star Sports Department.
The NGD Star Sports Department of Nsengiyumva Global Development Foundation (also known as "NGD Sports" and "NGD Star Sports") was created on March 15, 2014 in Magara of Commune Bugarama in the Province of Rumonge, Burundi.

The Sports Department currently oversees 19 sports clubs in 13 localities of 3 provinces (Makamba, Rumonge, and City of Bujumbura) located in the South-Western part Burundi. These sports clubs are run on daily basis through 3 Sports Academies which provide basic and professional training in Soccer, Running and Cycling Athletics, and Basketball.

Our Belief.
At NGD Star Sports Department, our purpose is to kindle the love for sports. We believe that every child can benefit from playing the game and pride ourselves in promoting fair play, positive attitudes, teamwork, self-respect and personal self-esteem.

Our Promise.
We promise to promote joy, ignite passion and develop skills. Our programs are designed to develop both technical and personal skills, building a foundation for youth development both on and off the court.
These sports academies, namely: Star Football AcademyStar Athletics Academy, and Star Basketball Academy, act like sports technical bodies of the Foundation. Each academy is under a leadership of a "Directeur Technique", assisted by an "Encadreur Sportif". They both report to the Coordinator of the Department of Sports and they lead all Coaches of local clubs of the Foundation.

The qualitative word "STAR" in the name of clubs and academies represents "light of hope" and "bright future" for young boys and girls in a post-conflict era of Burundi.

This Department also organises, on annual basis, soccer tournaments (named "NGD U17 Cup" and for the Youth Under 17 Years of Age) in which even non-members clubs are invited as well to partake in the competition for a Prize and hence provide these young girls and boys another reason to cheer up!

This department is led by a Coordinator, assisted by a Secretary. They both report to the Executive Director of the Foundation.
