Grootbos Foundation

What do we do?

We offer a volunteer programme for individuals that are passionate about youth and sports development in South Africa. We also focus on social integration, health promotion and environmental awareness.


The programme aims to use sport to achieve social outcomes such as:

  • Improving the health and fitness of youth with a focus on HIV/Aids education & prevention programmes
  • Training and capacity building of coaches which results in employment and poverty alleviation
  • Addressing issues of community safety and reducing levels of crime
  • Enhancing social cohesion through integrated sports and education programmes
  • Contributing to improved school attendance and educational performance
  • Developing social and communication skills and increasing employability
  • Contributing to broad policies of sustainable community development and regeneration with a focus on ownership of projects
