Summary

Our participants don't have access to fields where they can safely play sport. Too often they play on rocky fields that have more dust than grass and this makes it difficult for them to develop their skills. We need your support to help us build a second soccer field where our participants can safely play sports, learn from their coaches and have fun with their peers. The second field will help us reach more children, broadening our reach. Thank you for helping us transform lives through sport!

Challenge

The children in our program have limited access to good quality fields where they can play sport safely. Coming from low-income communities, our participants often play sport on dusty/rocky fields, making it difficult for them to develop their skills. Additionally, the poor quality fields can discourage participants from taking part in our program, limiting their growth and development.

Solution

We have started solving this problem by creating high-quality astroturf football fields, where our participants can play football in a safe environment. We have already built and successfully launched one field and the response from our participants has been so positive. They are able to play in a space that is fun and safe, where our participants can concentrate on their sport, learn life skills from their coaches and meet people from different backgrounds.

Long-Term Impact

The new field will help us reach more participants through our development through football program. Not only will this uplift our participants but it will allow us to employ 6 more previously unemployed youth, provide high school scholarships to promising students and it will help us generate our own income through our evening football league. Your contribution will contribute to transforming lives through sport while contributing to the long-term sustainability of United Through Sport.
