Using sport as the vehicle for education.
The Sporting Chance Development Foundation (SCDF) inspires South African children to develop a lifelong passion for exercise and sport and to enjoy a healthy and positive lifestyle. The SCDF is committed to identifying and nurturing natural and raw sports talent among South African children.
Through the Foundation South African children from impoverished communities are provided the opportunity to play sport in a safe and structured environment while simultaneously receiving an education on important life skills. The SCDF focuses on fostering the upliftment of children by teaching them to prioritise their education and to steer away from social evils.
The Sporting Chance Development Foundation was officially registered as an NPO in 2009, although the team had been rolling out community development interventions and programmes since Sporting Chance was launched in 1990.
