This project develops orphaned and vulnerable children from the township communities. The focus is to use sport as a tool to deliver key education and support to give these children more opportunity


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

Long-Term Impact

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.
