Every year the Football Foundation throws a year-end Christmas party for the children who attend development sports training throughout the year. With most of the children of Masakhane heading off to the Eastern Cape as early as the end of November 2018, we decided to hold a Back2School party at the start of 2019 instead. 500 stationery packs were packed and distributed by the Football Foundation coaches and volunteers to the eager-faced kids at the Spaces4Sports field in Gansbaai.
The stationery packs give these children a fresh start to their academic year. The packs include brand new classroom items like glue, scissors, pens and pencils, geometry sets, calculators, flip files and exam pads. Thank you to all the individuals who gave so generously, and donated stationery items to support this campaign. You helped us make meaningful change in the lives of these children who are so eager to learn.
