The Imizamo Yethu Sports Field Project has created an online presence to support the promotion of the project and facilitate the raising of funds.  The project has established a website, blog, Facebook group and a page on the charity fund raising site JustGiving.

 The project aims to raise £300,000 through the charity International Development through Sport (Charity Registration No 1001564) to provide a 3G synthetic sports field and supporting youth sport and development programme in the informal settlement of Imizamo Yethu.

Imizamo Yethu is situated in Hout Bay, Cape Town, South Africa and has limited and poor facilities for sports participation especially for young people.  This project aims to improve the lives of young people from Imizamo Yethu by giving them the opportunity to take part in sports activity linked to life skills training.

The project will use email and social media to recruit and support 100,000 individuals in the UK who will each be asked to commit to raising £300 each.  Funds raised will be collected through JustGiving the online charity fundraising website.

If you would like to support this charitable effort, please contact us.
