Nemato Change a Life 2021
Nemato Foundation Cricket Academy
Mzansi Rugby Academy
Coach Barry Scharneck asked if we could take care of the restoration of the sports field at Nomzamo school.
Because we think sport is very important for the youth of Nemato, we have taken care of this.
The terrain is accessible again and sports can be enjoyed again.
Nemato Foundation Karate Academy
Since this year we started our brand new project, Nemato Foundation Karate Academy. Our coach Clive Naido who is widely known as the karate coach in Station Hill was eager to work with us.
In addition to children who pay a contribution to Clive for the lessons, we also support children from families who cannot afford it. We have therefore also sponsored the karate suits.
Training is held twice a week in different age groups.
In August we equipped the hall where the training takes place with good karate mats so that the children will not get hurt so quickly.
We have also purchased a lot of new equipment, such as punching balls, kettlebells and many other materials to make the training sessions even more challenging and varied.
On December 13, our board member Chainz went to Port Elizabeth with Clive and the pupils for their graduation . It was a very successful day and all children passed.
Just like the cricket kids, the karate kids also closed the season with a braai.
Nemato Foundation Cricket Academy 2
On May 22, our coach organized a T20 tournament for our cricket players. It was a great success. A match was also played on June 16. If there were no Corona restrictions, there is cricket training a few times a week, so that the children are off the street after school. Very important in the environment in which they grow up. An environment with many challenges.
On July 6 they received a whole new cricket equipment and in December we have provided the cricket pitch with a brand new carpet so that there can be full training again.
Also in December the cricket season ended with a delicious braai, they enjoyed also the results that the kids achieved together with their coach Thanduxolo.
We want to thank Thanduxolo’s mother, Priscilla, who is a big help to us. She takes care of the cricket whites and washes them after every match.
