Children born around the end of the Apartheid era, but still victims of its effects and lack of opportunities. Unemployment rate of 80%. High birth rate and death rate, a low life expectancy and average family income of around $16 per month. Children from large families forced to live in crowded conditions. Children often raised by grandparents having lost both parents to HIV/Aids. Children fortunate to be able to attend school at all as they struggle to afford fees, uniform and transport.
Orphaned & vulnerable kids are given full scholarships, to the school run by United Through Sport South Africa & IMBEWU Suisse to receive sports coaching, life orientation classes and personal mentoring sessions and academic support on top of their normal academic education
The aim is for 100% of the kids to leave the school with a full matric qualification and to be placed at University, a vocational institution or in employement to be able to use the skills they have learned to get a great start to independent life.
