Introduction 

With most children in South Africa lacking access to education in general, it becomes hard for teachers and families to prioritize 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.

Report 

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.

Dear Supporters. 

Unfortunately we are still a very long way off our target. Every day the children play football on a dust pitch and it really is the highlight of their day. The joy the game brings the children is incredible and we know that this also helps mental health, child fitness and helps stimulate the brain so children are more open to learning in the classroom. 

Sport really does have so many benefits but the negative side is the amount of injuries that lead to the children then missing their education as they have fallen over on a hard dust pitch so our mission for a grass pitch is essential to help keep children learning and safe. 

It's going to cost £6,000 for the field and while this seems expensive, imagine converting a dusty pitch in a township into a quality grass pitch, its not an easy task. We will begin with bringing in top soil then planting the grass seeds, installing an irrigation system with borehole water and then fencing off the pitch to ensure it stays protected and looked after. 

People in the township find it hard to imagine this is a possibility but with your support we can do it and see a community be transformed through sport! 

We will never give up, we will continue to fundraise until we hit our target and then we will build this new pitch for the children and the community in South Africa. 

 

Join Us as we transform the future 

Thanks,

John

Report 

This last quarter we  purchased 5 footballs and 1 cricket set for our after school project in South Africa. 

We aim to fundraise £6,000 to cover the cost of installing a football field at our local school. It will be fenced off to protect the area but will also be open to the community and school 7 days a week. We need to install irrigation systems this is why it is expensive

Report 

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. $20 provides basic sports equipment for one child.
