All Work and No Play, Makes Jack a Dull Boy!

Thank you for the soccer ball

All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy. Did you remember learning this proverb / saying when you were growing up?

As you may know, Develop Africa focuses on empowering lives in Africa by providing the resources and support that they need to improve and better themselves.  Through your support, we have provided scholarships, mosquito nets, uniforms, school supplies etc. to thousands to children.  We motivate them on an on-going basis to do well at school.

That said we realize that life is more than progress in school.  There are many other things that are essential for children to learn as they grow.  The growth and development of children must be rounded and holistic.

With this in mind, we support a range of other activities on an on-going basis.  This includes the provision of exercise or sports equipment - such as soccer / volleyballs, skipping / jump ropes etc.  We recently provided a new set of these items and organized a number of competitions (with prize money for the winners) for the kids at Door of Hope. Our goal was to brighten the lives of the kids.

We believe that kids should have fun together.  Tremendous learning takes place in this atmosphere.  This offers several benefits including improved social interaction and understanding, better relationships with each other, focused skill learning, encouragement of competition etc.

Our sports competition event was a success.  The kids had a blast and were so very excited.

Watch Video - play time - sports activities and competitons


The photos and video show some of the activities - the skipping / jump rope competition and soccer penalty / goal scoring competition.  The videos show their energy.  Don’t you wish you were there?

The children truly had a lot of fun!  Thanks to your support we brightened their day and helped them become better, more rounded children.  Thank YOU for helping to be a part of enriching their lives.  Africa will have a brighter future - thanks to YOUR support!
