Why your donation matters
Hope Through Action's unique approach combines a modern sports centre, with tightly integrated development programmes, to provide life changing opportunities for young people in South Africa.
We believe that, through the power of sport, we can change the lives of young people facing daily challenges of poverty, ill health and social exclusion. The community sports centre provides a safe and secure environment to play, learn and have fun, with trained coaches and staff. Not only do they improve their fitness, but they learn to work and play as a team. Through workshops they increase their health awareness, and our leadership programmes develop their leadership, sports and peer coaching skills.
Donate now - your support will help young people in South Africa to fulfil their potential.
Case study: donations in action
“People used to discriminate against me because I am disabled. I could never play football but now I am playing with able bodied children too!”
Every Monday Andile walks to the Mbekweni Community Sports Centre near Paarl, in South Africa, to play football as part of the SINAKO (“We Can”) programme, for children and youth with disabilities. The Community Sports Centre was built by UK charity, Hope Through Action.
“I’ve never played on a team before, this is the first time. Now people recognise me as being part of the community,” he continues.
Football is not the only sport on offer, but it’s the one he enjoys the most. “I’m sticking to football. I want to become a coach and teach other children.” At the Centre he has friends from across the Western Cape who, like him, come to play sport without prejudice or judgement.
Through the SINAKO programme Andile and his new friends are breaking down barriers in their communities, making a difference both on and off the field.
