  2. I live in the US, but have a friend from Kampala (Or maybe a suburb.) The man is a teacher but is off now due to the Pandemic and has been out of work . However, he has coached a football (soccer) team and has an innate ability to teach kids. I am wondering if you can give me some tips about what he might do, using those young men as a work force that would bring money to him and the team members. Here in the states money can be made doing window washing, house cleaning etc. I just don’t know what opportunities are offered in Uganda.

    1. Great to hear from you. You do not mention how young the lads are. The first challenge I see is that most likely working with those lads would be considered child labor and therefore illegal.

      If that is the case as I suppose bit is, turning the training into a full soccer academy that attracts the affluent children to pay up and meet the bills would be my first option in monetizing your friend’s training skills.
