Thank you to the Department of Health in Mpumalanga for assisting us by sending testing partners to help conduct HIV/AIDS testing. To our SOSA coaches and volunteers it is always an honour working with you and we appreciate your constant dedication towards the organisation and to our athletes.

The “Skillz for Life” camp is designed to deliver a sport based health and life skills curriculum for in-school individuals living with or without intellectual disabilities.

This holiday camp we addressed over 500 athletes and partners in 4 districts the priority needs among this population which included: HIV/ Aids prevention, violence, drug and alcohol abuse, and healthy living, including sexual health and services utilization

On the last day of the holiday camp our athletes participated In a Unified soccer tournament for both male and female participants. We would like to thank the principals from each school which was involved in the camp for allowing us to use their schools facilities.
