While physical poverty farmiliarises township children to a negative culture, sport has the ability to break that cycle by engaging will-power, ambition to belong to an uplifting environment.
The Real Youth International projects will manage sports programmes that create an environment that realises the potential excellence of learners and challenge standard expectation perception
Real Youth International started when Dumisani, coming from a backround of loving sport from De Aar, Northern Cape, noticed the lack of recreational activities in the township of Khayelitsha. He initiated an afterschool coaching clinic to teach boys how to play basketball, his favourite sport he learnt in De Aar.
The demand grew as many kids from Khayelitsha came in numbers willing to join. Dumisani therefore extended the voluteer activity to schools as to secure the long-term goals.
Why Dumisani created Real Youth International:
“I was very passionate about sport from primary school, I enjoyed the feeling of being ackowledged. Sport allows children to be noticed positively, and in townships where a lack of acknowledgement leads to youth finding their potential negatively, the needs to share RYI philosophy remains fundamental.”
The philosophy of Real Youth International is to first identify potential and allow youth and children to discover their own. While allocating prorammes, the aim of Real Youth International is to deliver holostic benefits of recreational activities to simulteniously advance the community through individual mental capacity.
