Sport clubs for disadvantaged South African kids



We run sport clubs (that includes rollerblading, skateboarding, skim boarding and athletics for people with disabilities) combined with a life skills program. Our aim is to see young people reach their full potential by focusing on youth who gets over-looked many times. To inspire them through positive role modeling, relationship building, coaching sport, mentoring life skills and creating opportunities.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

I2B mainly works in poor, disadvantaged areas but is not restricted to these communities. Problems are very similar in most of the areas we work in. To name a few: - High amount of school drop outs - Previously disadvantaged economic areas - Youth are very prone to either join the Rastafarian groups or gangs.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our life-skills program focus on motivating youth to put their education first. The program helps youth to realise the importance of education and also rewarding them for good school marks. Teaching youth good morals and standards through our life-skills programs. Raising up (and even employing) leaders in the community to coach youngsters again. The coach builds trust through relationship. Coaches choose captains for the clubs to develop leadership skills.

Potential Long Term Impact

Through our sport and life skills clubs we coach 100 kids on a weekly basis. Currently we only have one full time coach and two part time coaches. Through the long term relationship built by these coaches the aim is to see the youth become financially independent adults.
