SPORTS DEVELOPMENT

“Sport has the power to change the world”
-Nelson Mandela

ABOUT SPORTS DEVELOPMENT:

Besides having a positive impact on physical and mental health sport promotes social skills such a mutual understanding, fairness or tolerance. Our sport development project combines different initiatives using the power of sports to make a meaningful difference in lives of people.

WHY SPORT DEVELOPMENT PROJECT EXISTS

Lack of sport opportunities

The problems of Vrygrond and Lavender Hill include a lack of infrastructure and opportunities to do sports

Under-resourced schools

Schools in Townships often lack resources (financial and staff) to provide physical education or extra-curricular sport to students.

Volatile environment

The youth of Vrygrond and Lavender Hill grow up in a toxic environment with crime, substance abuse and regular gang violence

THE APPROACH OF THE SPORT DEVELOPMENT PROJECT

Using sport as a tool to deliver life skills that enable young people to shape their own future.

HOW SPORT DEVELOPMENT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Provide Sports equipment

With funds from our Sports Development project we provide under-resourced schools and local clubs with sports equipment. Thereby we ensure that young people from areas characterized by poverty and inequality have the opportunity to do sports.

Sport activities and physical education

To Promote sports development in townships of South Africa our volunteers have the opportunity to provide physical education and extra-curricular sport to local schools.

Build infrastructure

Our long term goal is to build a sports field for the Community of Vrygrond. A sports field provides a safe environment where the youth can be empowered to realize their full potential.
