Maccabi WP visits Khayelitsha

3 April 2018
On Sunday 25 March, Maccabi Western Province visited the CTC Ten Foundation in Khayelitsha where they played friendly soccer matches against underprivileged boys & girls from the area.

A group of 60 boys and girls from Maccabi WP participated in the event which was run by the CTC Ten Foundation facilitators who started off the day with dancing and team building exercises for the children which were thoroughly enjoyed by all, including supporting parents.

After the intros and warm ups were done, the soccer games commenced with the u13 boys and u17 girls playing first, followed by the u15 and u17 boys. The quality on show was high, with both the boys & girls from Khayelitsha and Maccabi displaying exceptional skills and talent. The games were played in great spirit and respect for each other.

The day concluded with Maccabi boys & girls donating clothes, books, equipment, toys and shoes to the CTC Ten Foundation. Ronen Cohen, chairman of Maccabi WP said “The relationship between Maccabi WP and the CTC Ten Foundation is a very important one for us and we strive at all costs to make sure that it flourishes so that it can continue to help those children who are less fortunate and in need. It is our way of giving back to the broader community of South Africa and strengthening the bond between Jews and non-Jews in South Africa.”

The facility is part of a broader community development project run by an NGO called AMANDLA EDUFOOTBALL and sponsored by an American group who not only provide funding but also sponsor university graduate volunteers to come out for a year from America to work with the project.http://www.edufootball.org
