High unemployment, chronic poverty and crime rates, as well as sexual violence against young girls and teenagers, are some of the main issues facing the rural communities of Tshwane, a municipality of Pretoria with a population of nearly 3 Million people.


Altus Sport identifies unemployed young people with potential and trains them on leadership, life skills, project management and gender equality through the “Life’s a Ball” sport programme. Once they have completed their training, these young people are able to offer sessions addressing health, education and everyday life skills to disadvantaged children throughout the community.


There are currently 42 coaches in 12 communities teaching values such as friendship, respect, self-belief and determination to young boys and girls all over the Tshwane area.
