Even though the meaning has been lost over the years, the South African townships keep looking dismal, lived mainly by black people. Kayamandi, located just outside Stellenbosch, is the second oldest township in South Africa and has quite a fascinating story: its development happened over the course of decades to cope with the living needs of workers coming from Eastern Cape.

With time, a nice community has developed, united and warm. Still, poverty is a major issue in the area and children are especailly affected by it. Visiting Kayamandi, you come across the Ikhaya primary school.
Its principal Thulani Nofemele has a big passion and humanity.

The school has become a reference point and serves more than 2000 kids. The Tennis World Foundation project will focus on a group of 250 children from the third grade.

Pinkie Yoliswa is in charge of sports training and she firmly believes that sport is essential when it comes to education. In the school, there’s also a tennis court, now abandoned, which needs some intervention to be ready for use again. 

Tennis World Foundation identified important possibilities within this school and would like to intervene having in mind two clear goals: offer their development program for children and fix the tennis court.

The total cost for the 12 weeks introduction programme for 250 children is R50 000(around $3600) per school.
And Tennis World Foundation wants to fix the court too.

The second step in our tennis development vision, is to establish tennis teams in the IKHAYA Primary School. After the introductory phase (Phase 1), we select a team of promising young players and initiate an intense training and development programme. The outcome of this phase is to fast tack the level of playing and to get the players competing in tournaments.

This phase is ongoing, with a 6 month coaching plan annually, and each team consists of 20 - 24 players. The team coaching takes place at nearby tennis facilities, insuring that the young players experience playing on quality courts and that they have all the support needed to become competitive.

The total cost for 6 months is R36 000 (araund $2600) per team.
