Short Story

We  have partnered up with two local non profits , EduSport Youth and Masiyusane to raise money to build a literacy centre in Mdantsane. We decided that we were going to row on the rowing machine for 6 hours.

We managed to row a total of 52 kilometers in 6 hours in 1-hour shifts.

The task did pose some challenges when we started but we pushed through it.

EduSport Youth Organization:

EduSport Youth is a youth empowerment organization that provides people in need with sport and education. They improve the community by providing opportunities for youth to work in schools, clubs, and after-school academic sport programs, ensuring that everyone has equal access to education and sport. They hire and train unemployed youth to be literacy tutors or sports coaches.

Our Story and take:

In South Africa, approximately 80% of all grade 4 students are functionally illiterate. These students are crammed into a single classroom with up to 74 other students, impeding their progress in learning to read and write. Because there are so many children in one class, it is difficult for teachers to help each student individually. Our goal is to raise enough funds to contribute to the construction of a Literacy Centre in Mdantsane to assist underprivileged children. To accomplish this goal, we intend to play golf for six hours in order to raise funds. Any donation, large or small, will be greatly appreciated and will help this cause.
