About Us

We help The children and youth of our local communities by Offering vocational training & sports coaching (6-18yr)

More about my Cause

The Grootbos Foundation initially started in 2003 with a year long vocational training course in indigenous horticulture and life skills. The course is ongoing with many successful graduates having graduated from this course and our more recent hospitality courses.

These courses are highly subscribed to as a matric certificate is not a prerequisite and they offer a valuable, AgriSeta accredited and supported tertiary qualification in an area where there is little or no opportunities available for the youth of the community to gain the necessary skills and tools for gainful employment.

In the communities, we offer a safe space after school for the children of the community to participate in soccer, netball, hockey and athletics training. The Spaces for Sports fields are centrally located and accessible to all. Our numbers have grown and grown and the children through our sports programmes now exceed 5 000 children per annum! As we are in need of on the ground assistance, we recruit volunteers with sport coaching and drills expertise to assist our community coaches. We are also always in need of sporting equipment and gear.

As per all NGO's in rural areas, the need is so great and the causes so dire they are impossible to ignore. We are now therefore assisting 3 local Childhood Development Centres (Thakalani, Masakane & Good Hope) with providing safe, hygienic, nurturing spaces for 160 children.
