CAC began working with the Bulldogs Sports Development Trust (BSDT) in 2012.  In our first year we helped train approximately 100 coaches in the field of Sport for Social Impact.  Since then, BSDT has implemented a league, had teams participate in tournaments, and used soccer to teach their young children about important issues, especially HIV/AIDS.  One of the best parts of the trainings were the women who participated, some of whom were grandmothers.  These community matriarchs are ensuring that the trainings continue and have taken ownership in their communities.

In 2013 we are looking to expand our partnership to include trainings in Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe.  In both of their locations, BSDT uses sport (soccer, volleyball, swimming, handball, and basketball) to engage the vulnerable youth of these two communities.  To learn more about BDST, please check out their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/bulldogssportsdev.
