With the end of 2016 fast approaching, preparations for 2017 are in full swing at PeacePlayers International SA. After ending the programme year on a great note with a successful 27th City Wide Tournament, the bar is set high. This year, the Cultural Care Kids First Foundation came on board as the major funder for the 27th City Wide Tournament along with other valued funding from the Laureus SA Foundation, Jotun South Africa, Cooee Soft Drinks and FutureLife.
For the first time, PPI-SA was able to provide all 450 participants a PPI-SA branded t-shirt through the support from funders, which was the highlight of the day for the teams. The day ended with the Cwebezela Primary School girls and boys team coached by TT as the 2016 Champions in the PSP programme. On the LDP side, Umlazi finest, team TT Janda, took the LDP Championship for 2016.
With the programme closed for 2016, the PPI-SA staff is still hard at work looking for vibrant young people to coach and work as area coordinators in the 2017 programme. If you are passionate about developing and empowering young people, check out the position posts below.
