In the suburbs of Port Elizabeth, the SIYAKHULA! project provides the children and young adults with a safe area to play, learn and develop through after-school sports activities. Supervised by teachers and specialized coaches, the program activities take place on the playgrounds of the two partner primary schools: Isaac Booi Primary School in the township of Zwide and Astra Primary School in Bloemendaal’s coloured community.
Thanks to the SIYAKHULA! project, the children and adolescents are also taught about the social and health challenges which affect them and is essential to their development, whilst improving their academic skills through learning support. The project also provides a daily meal prepared by the Cooking Mamas. SIYAKHULA! makes an important contribution to the global educational programme by offering training opportunities to the teachers and the coaches of United Through Sport, IMBEWU’s partner organisation.
