- South Africa may be going through a difficult time with crime and xenophobia hanging over the country like a dark cloud, but that doesn't mean there's no hope for a bright future
- Four young boys are combining the passion they have for soccer and helping other children
- Thanks to these guys, less privileged kids can also take part in sport and have fun
Charity begins at home, or in this case, at a young age. Four Grade 7 boys are reaching out to less privileged kids so they can have fun too.
Somaan Khan, Aazan Khan, Ross Garrett, and Michael Adamson are as passionate about sport as they are about helping others.
They've combined their passions and started the change they want to see in Mzansi.
Together, they founded Play It Forward Jozi - an initiative that collects second-hand sports equipment and distributes it to schools and communities, reports BeautifulNews.
The boys feel that all kids should have fun and that's why they want them to be able to play sport - that's one of the healthiest ways a child can have a good time.
Brieflly.co.za gathered that Play It Forward Jozi recently celebrated its 1st anniversary and managed to collect 3 000 items to give out to others.
These boys are living proof that Ubuntu is still something that flows through the veins of South Africans.
They also host regular presentations at schools in the hope of encouraging others to take action and donate as well.
