Sports and Sport Development Initiatives

 Playing on a team gives a child the opportunity to become a leader, and good leadership is a very valuable characteristic in life. Most of the schools in rural areas don't have proper sports grounds.


It is with this in mind that Jasper and Lesedi Power Projects, in conjunction with PPC, made a positive contribution in the support of a grassroots intervention for local sport and personal development. This takes the form of a soccer field for the community of Tlhakalatlou, Daniƫlskuil.


Through participation in future sport and soccer activities, young people who might otherwise have little opportunity for constructive recreational activity, are taught the advantages of such life-skills as commitment, competitiveness, teamwork, discipline and timekeeping. In so doing, the advantages of heightened self-esteem and associated self-confidence are formed.
