GRASSROOTS "SKILLZ FOR LIFE" HOLIDAY CAMPAIGN IN SOUTH AFRICA

GRASSROOTS "SKILLZ FOR LIFE" HOLIDAY CAMPAIGN IN SOUTH AFRICA

The “Skillz for Life” camp is designed to deliver a sport based health and life skills curriculum for in-school individuals living with or without intellectual disabilities.

This holiday camp addressed over 500 athletes and partners in 4 districts. Priority needs among this population included: HIV/ Aids prevention, violence, healthy living, drug and alcohol abuse, including sexual health and services utilization.

On the last day of the holiday camp, the athletes participated in a Unified soccer tournament for both male and female participants. We would like to thank the principals from each school which was involved in the camp for allowing us to use their schools facilities.
