This is the human story of helping the schools in Masiphumelele transform their children, teenagers, their families and the community through sport, life-skills training and education.
In 2019, Michael Tyhali, the Ukhanyo Primary school Principal, said: “Sport is a game changer!” Children need an identity, a sense of belonging and feeling of spontaneous invincibility one gets through sport. Sport can give the kids a glimpse of their real and unlimited potential. It also leads them away from gangs and drugs as they navigate those sometimes challenging school years.
It is the trilogy of sport, life-skills and education that can lead the learners to a life fulfilled. That is our purpose.
