Company Gives back to create young leaders

Written by: diannem

Imagine a competition that allows kids to do what they love while giving back to their schools for free - the annual Central Build It Challenge does just that.

Held annually at the Edenvale football club, the event sees 16 primary schools from Alexandra Township and Tembisa invited to participate in the competition at a no cost. In fact, all transportation for the schools, food and snacks on the day, as well as first and second prizes (including full soccer kits for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place schools) are already provided!

“The aim of this initiative is to promote sports development, while investing in the infrastructure of our schools. We believe that an active child produces a productive mind, and an improved school produces improved results”.

Sthembiso Kubheka

First and second place schools receive a R 10 000 and R 5 000 voucher to use toward renovations at the school.

This kind of community involvement goes a long way in supporting the youth to develop critical skills and self-esteem - thank you to all involved!
