In a country so well known for its sporting prowess, many learners at township schools are not receiving the benefits of physical and sporting development. Educators do not have the time and schools do not have the resources to offer extra-mural or sport development facilities.
In partnership with Sportstec and the Red Cap Foundation, My Township Schools Foundation is working hard to reverse this condition. We need your help to create a world where every child has a sporting chance. Together, we can help reduce poverty, and increase a township child’s chances of achieving excellence in sport, in school, in life.
Many urban township schools have minimal resources. By necessity, their main focus is on delivering the set curriculum. This does not leave any opportunity to develop learners in other areas such as physical education, extra-curricular and social development activities. To make a meaningful contribution to society when they leave school it is imperative that township school learners are able to play, read and travel, to be aware of the world around them. This requires social and education development beyond what their set curriculum can deliver.
My Township Schools Foundation uses sport as a catalyst to positively influence and empower learners to break away from the cycle of poverty and crime in our communities. By targeting children while they are still at school, we use to sport to influence a generation of achievers and leaders. Our vision is to provide opportunities for sporting achievement and personal development for as many children as possible. In this way we can empower them to become competent, confident and responsible citizens of our society.
With support from the Health, Welfare and Services Sector Education Training Authorities (SETA); skills development facilitators within our organisation; and volunteers drawn from the community, we are implementing a series of school-specific after-care and support programmes to help brig about the change that these schools need.
These programmes cover:
- Physical education and sports;
- Social and educational excursions;
- Themed arts and culture workshops;
- the Township School Books initiative.
