  • Overview of Project:
    The Hope Academy program trains the children 3 days a week and plays matches on the weekend. Each child is placed in a development plan which is monitored by their coach. The coach also works alongside the families in the development of the child / juvenile offender. Each child in the Hope Academy is impacted holistically to make strong and wise decisions in all areas of life when they grow up or leave prison. In South Africa there is a lack of strong male or female leaders in our communities. The Hope Academy program aims to impact children over a long period of time and invest heavily into their lives at every level. Our aim is to see the Academy members go on to become strong, positive leaders with good morals in the sporting or commercial world. The Hope Academy program is about impacting the next generation who will go onto to teach and show others how to make wise life choices and thus combat HIV/AIDS, crime, abuse, inequality and poverty.
