AMANDLA

AMANDLA deve­lops inno­va­ti­ve, soci­al busi­ness models and solu­ti­ons so that young peop­le may deve­lop their full poten­ti­al. The Safe-Hub edu­ca­ti­on cen­tres built by AMANDLA unite the power of foot­ball with holi­s­tic edu­ca­ti­on and per­so­na­li­ty deve­lop­ment in order to streng­t­hen child­ren and ado­lescents and to chan­ge their lives per­man­ent­ly.
Since the effec­tiven­ess of the pro­jects is pro­ven, AMANDLA has been awar­ded sever­al times.

The co-operation

Description of the cooperation

The goal of the long-term coope­ra­ti­on is the joint deve­lop­ment of a coa­ching pro­gram­me and the con­struc­tion of Safe-Hubs in soci­al hot spots world­wi­de. Programme deve­lop­ment has alre­a­dy been suc­cess­ful­ly com­ple­ted. The joint coa­ching pro­gram­me is alre­a­dy used in prac­tice and pro­vi­des trai­ning for up to 4,000 child­ren and young peop­le weekly. It pro­mo­tes the com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on of a gene­ral value sys­tem and soci­al skills, and the holi­s­tic trai­ning of coa­ches.

The effect of the ‘Go for it!’ coa­ching pro­gram­me is regu­lar­ly eva­lua­ted and the pro­gram­me is con­ti­nu­al­ly deve­lo­ped. The suc­cess of the two Safe-Hubs in Cape Town is alre­a­dy clear­ly visi­ble: This is high­ligh­ted in the offi­ci­al sta­ti­s­tics of South African poli­ce and the eva­lua­ti­on reports of Cape Town’s University of Western Cape:

44
less vio­len­ce and cri­me in the imme­dia­te vicini­ty of the Safe-Hubs
49
impro­ved school per­for­man­ce by pro­gram­me par­ti­ci­pants

After suc­cess­ful­ly using the coa­ching pro­gram­me in the two Safe-Hubs in Cape Town, the coope­ra­ti­on part­ners intend to esta­blish addi­tio­nal Safe-Hubs in soci­al hot spots world­wi­de.
