Introduction

Volunteers on this project connect with children from underprivileged backgrounds via the medium of sport, combining physical education with the promotion of health and social awareness- The schools in these townships simply do not have the resources to provide pupils with any kind physical education so volunteers are able to give local children the opportunity to use sports facilities they would otherwise not have access to- Bringing their passion for sport to townships on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth, volunteers take coaching sessions, run matches and organise tournaments- However, while the focus is on sport, the priority is on developing personal life skills among South African children, promoting health and social awareness and getting children involved in a positive activity that bridges social divides, keeps children off the streets and gives them the chance to learn and develop while enjoying themselves- This means that volunteers do not simply coach sport, they make a real difference to the lives of children from underprivileged backgrounds-
