Summary

Sports education and being active is a vital part of a child's development and success in schooling. However, for many children in South Africa, there is a lack of sports equipment, proper and safe infrastructure to practise in and often no teachers educated or dedicated to providing extra-curricular or sports education. Our goal is to provide our local township school in South Africa with the necessary resources and improved infrastructure to provide activities for the children.

Challenge

With most children in South Africa lacking access to education in general, it becomes hard for teachers and families to prioritise safe and educated sports activities, as they are barely receiving school books. Due to the lack of funding most rural or informal schools don't have sports equipment, proper infrastructure or playgrounds. Without safe outdoor activities at a young age, children are at risk of poor health as well as putting themselves in danger when they to play in unsupervised areas

Solution

By funding sports equipment, resources and educating the children on the importance of sports and recreation in their development, we hope to improve the overall health and wellbeing of the children in our local school. We also hope to improve their attitudes towards sport and extra-curricular activities so that they understand the importance whilst being safe. By providing a safe place for the children to play, we hope to keep them safe from external threats and improve physical health

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impact of this project will be to boost the overall health and wellbeing of the children in the school as well s hopefully motivating children to take it further, as a career in sports education or even inspire young professional athletes. By providing the necessary resources, equipment and infrastructure we hope to give these children a sense of pride in their schooling and motivate them as they are not missing out on a key part of their education.
