Summary

We are aiming to raise money for kids from disadvantaged and vulnerable backgrounds. We try to give the kids an opportunity of a lifetime. These kids have been selected and deserve to go to a Top High School in SA, to have a better future and be able to follow their dreams. Together we can do so much! Our goal is to provide these 15 kids with the 'basic support' they need. What this package consists of can be seen in the donation options. Though, some of the kids do need 'full support'!

Challenge

The kids from disadvantaged and vulnerable backgrounds, living in the townships of Port Elizabeth, do not get a fair chance of good education. The primary schools don't have the resources and money to realise the same educational level as the primary schools in the wealthier areas. Only 3% of the children from these areas go to University.

Solution

United Through Sport focuses on education, sport and life skills to keep them off the streets. The motivated kids are selected for the Junior School of Excellence Program. They provide special classes and activities after school to learn mainly about life skills and to show them they can have a future. We want to give these kids an opportunity of their lifetime by funding their scholarships and give them a chance to go to top level high school.

Long-Term Impact

Give the children a future and let them follow their dreams to go to top level high school and University. Through the education at the University they will have a bright future in which their chance increases significantly to be employed with good jobs. It will lead to the eventual uplifting of their families and the community around them. United Through Sport helps them to break out of the poverty cycle.
