Short Story

We are a group of 5 grade 11 boys namely, Ayabukhwa, Xhanti, Liyema, Anda and Qula, who have started a fitness for lives campaign.

The non-profit organization we’ve joined forces with in this campaign is EduSport Youth which is located in East London.

In our campaign each group member aims to complete multiple sets of various workouts for a total of 5 hours, to raise funds. We would truly appreciate your donations to help raise these funds we would appreciate donations of R50 per hour of the fitness campaign.

The funds collected will go towards establishing a literacy centre aimed at helping children who lack basic reading and writing skills.

Roughly 80% of fourth-grade students in South Africa lack functional literacy, and having a classroom with 74 students poses challenges to effectively instructing each child and ensuring they all acquire the necessary skills.

Within our campaign, every team member strives to finish several rounds of diverse exercises, totaling 5 hours, in order to generate funds. Your contributions to support this cause would be greatly valued; we would  appreciate a donation of R50 for each hour of the fitness campaign. The proceeds will be directed towards creating a literacy centre with the goal of assisting children who are struggling with fundamental reading and writing abilities.

Our partners, EduSportYouth, are a youth empowerment organization dedicated to offering education and sports opportunities to underserved individuals. Their mission involves enabling communities to improve their circumstances by generating employment opportunities for young people. They achieve this by training formerly unemployed youth to become coaches in literacy or sports.
