Challenge

Post-apartheid South Africa does not mandate Physical Education to be included in schools. Caregivers are often not home from work in the hours after school and so children are left to fend for themselves, putting them at risk of abuse or involvement in antisocial behavior. By providing a Street Sports Tournament we work to combat this lack of sports, afternoon supervision and provide opportunities for the children and coaches to interact with others.

Solution

A sports tournament enables children to emancipate, use their energy and excel. It provides a safe space after school when their carers aren't home, as well as promoting teamwork, discipline and healthy competition. Visiting other communities also open their minds to different people and improves the children's social development. Employment opportunities provides extra supervision for the children and secures income for families who may be struggling financially.

Long-Term Impact

Sport helps to educate children about teamwork, discipline and time management, all valuable for success in education and other aspects of life. To ensure the sustainability and longevity of the African Impact Foundation during COVID-19, donations made via this page as of April 10, 2020, will be used to support all of our projects and operations across Southern and Eastern Africa.
