Community Initiatives


Khulasande Sports Development (188-294-NPO) (KSD) is a non-profit organization formed with a vision of developing young athletes from previously disadvantaged communities, through providing opportunities to participate in well-organised and supervised recreational programmes.

By adopting a holistic approach to the development of the children, we not only focus on the athletic aspect of their development but also place a strong emphasis on academic development as well as teaching life skills through sport.

Our Vision, Mission & Values

Our mission is to work hand-in-hand with organisations with specific skills to help realise our goals. Through the assistance of these organisations, we will offer and produce unrivalled programmes that will benefit athletes from previously disadvantaged communities to bridge the sports development gap that exists in our society.

  • We are committed to making a positive difference to children's lives.
  • We care about the communities we serve.
  • We embrace diversity and encourage individuality while recognising the importance of team work.

Active Kids

Main funder: Grassroots Youth Development (GYD)

The Khulasande Active Kids Programme is a mass participation sports programme aimed at educating black learners and creating awareness about the importance of sports participation, exercise as well as healthy living and eating.

The programme creates opportunities for black children to participate in sports and recreational activities through structured coaching programmes.

Through this programme, talented children are also identified and where possible, are placed in specialized training programmes for their chosen sport, to allow them to meet their sporting potential.

Further, we hope to assist these athletes by providing the necessary support to excel in their sport.
