The African Youth Development Fund has partnered with 4 local schools to better equip township youth who wish to elevate their skills in the game of basketball. A holiday sneaker drive to provide used basketball sneakers for the youth involved in the “ARE YOU GAME” basketball leagues in Mamelodi, and Alexandra has gotten underway. The goal is to raise 600 pairs of sneakers/tekkies by the opening of the “ARE YOU GAME” league on January 23, 2013.

AYDF would like to thank the following schools for extending their hand of partnership in this effort; Holy Rosary Academy located in Edenvale, St. Stithians located in Sandton, Bellavista School located in Rosebank, and St. Mary’s School located in Highlands North. AYDF encourages any potential donors to contact the email attached to the flyer for more information. We hope that in this Holiday season people will remember the difference they can make in the life of a local child. The ability to properly train in a sport can make all the difference to a child’s level of success, and success can mean the difference between making good or bad choices. Please help AYDF to empower, and equip youth to make the right choices for their future.
