Every Tuesday, between 15:30 and 17:00 we teach life skills through soccer at Lwandle.
We started this project in the township of Lwandle at the beginning of April 2013. Since then, we have seen many young people attend these sessions. On average, we have 20-30 boys coming to these sessions, which are held on an excellent 3G astroturf pitch. These boys have played in beach soccer competitions and enjoyed games against other local teams as we seek to teach essential life skills and good sportsmanship to the boys.
In August 2014, we launched mentoring sessions for these boys to provide further support for these children and help them with any difficulties they may be having at home, in school or around the community.
