Youth for Christ KwaZulu Natal in partnership with YMCA Pietermaritzburg hosted a Homeless Soccer and Net Ball Tournament at the YMCA sports ground. The purpose for this event was to promote and encourage physical fitness, health and wellbeing. Also to ensure that they have an opportunity to showcase their talents. And it encourages a little healthy competition. One Life Church also took part on both games to support the work of our organisation.
Blessing Zondi who is the Khayalethu Program Outreach Co-ordinator advised that he has been visiting drop-in centres to monitor their performances and they all have been present for training. ‘I am overwhelmed with and excitement seeing this day being such a success, the thought of their dedication throughout the training days is paying off”, said Blessing. After the Tournament Medals which were donated by the Department of Sport and Recreation were handed over to all the teams as motivation to encourage them to keep their
bodies active. Youth for Christ plans to have more sporting events because they immensely to the kid’s
personalities and confidence.
