Trevor Dudley, Country Director, The Kids League
Sports for Development in Conflict Zones
It has been a terrible 20 years for 1 million boys and girls of Northern Uganda whose only aim in life was simply to survive another day.  A whole generation of children have grown up surrounded by conflict, with the poverty and injustice that this has created. Now, the introduction of The Kids League (TKL) in 8 conflict districts is bringing hopes and dreams to so many children to improve their lives. TKL are currently  establishing programmes in the challenging conflict districts of Karamoja trying to use sport as a means of bringing children together and breaking barriers down.   

Building on the success of the voluntary organisation Kampala Kids' League (KKL) he started in  Uganda in 1998, Trevor Dudley was awarded an Ashoka Fellowship and is now using the power of sports to improve the lives of 25,000 boys and girls at grassroots level, with positive transmission of health and education messages. The programme has been particularly effective in inspiring children in conflict zones, some of whom have suffered considerable trauma.


Davies Banda, Lecturer - Sports Development, Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, York St John University
Valuing Youth Voices in Monitoring and Evaluation: Africa and Europe Case Studies
This presentation focuses on the experiences of working with youth and adults engaged in community-based adult–led youth initiatives and youth-led initiatives from two case studies: Africa and Europe.  The study compares the involvement of African youths on youth-led collaborations to those of their counterparts in Europe and shares measures of best practice from both the south and the north, a shift from treating youth as mere recipients of services to engaging youths as active participants and implementers of programme objectives. It highlights the cultural contextualised problems that are faced in both case studies and how these are a hindrance to youth involvement.

Davies Banda is a Zambian national working in the UK as a lecturer at York St John University. Before joining York St John University, Davies worked as a Research Associate and full-time field researcher in the Sport Division at Sheffield Hallam University as a member of the Positive Futures National Research Team commissioned by the UK Home Office to undertake a countrywide monitoring and evaluation exercise of seven Positive Futures case study projects. He has also worked on a research project for the Institute of Sport and Leisure Policy, Loughborough University, commissioned by the International Olympic Committee to evaluate the involvement of women in national Olympic committees leading to the publication of Women and Leadership in the Olympic Movement. He has co-authored a forthcoming booklet ‘Dunking AIDS Out’, an approach that uses basketball drills and relates the drills to real life scenarios. His research interests are centred on HIV/AIDS Education through Sport and the use of “Sport in the Development Process" (SDP), an approach that seeks to foster community education, development and empowerment.
