Tennis, literacy and WASH-based activities to improve the health and school attendance of children aged 5-11 years.

This toolkit is designed for coaches and schoolteachers implementing the Court of Dreams project in Kibera in Nairobi, Kenya. The content of this manual allows coaches and teachers to plan, create and conduct sport and play-based sessions that aim to improve WASH among school children.

The target group includes girls and boys between the ages of 6 and 11 from non-privileged backgrounds in Kibera, the largest slum in East Africa. In the toolkit, the games, activities and exercises are categorised. Some games may be more suitable for either younger or older participants, although many games can be adjusted to an appropriate level for the specific age group. Each participant should be able to understand the rules, perform the exercise and identify connections between the game and the wider educational issues. This book is accompanied by a set of 48 pictures, posters and activity sheets, on WASH, life skills and literacy in math and English.
