Our Inspiration

 

“There is an urgent need to empower young people especially in the Johannesburg Inner-city, Soweto and Alex communities where the family unit is being broken down, households are struggling with high unemployment rates, and youth are exposed to environments with crime and violence nearly every day of their lives. Such realities are a central part of the rationale for continuing and expanding our Egolisquash programme to these disadvantaged communities.”


Egolisquash was established in 2009 in South Africa to focus on an intensive and long term programme; incorporating squash, fitness, tutoring, community service and mentoring in order to change children‟s lives for better.

Over the years, Egolisquash has managed to be one of the largest innovative programmes that effectively help 5000 youths aged 8-19 years of age to start, stay and succeed through the sport of squash in South Africa.

To date, Egolisquash through its Life Skills, Homework Support, Community Service programmes strives to inculcate positive values of trust, commitment, cooperation, discipline and above all providing fun and enjoyable activities for South African girls and boys who would otherwise lack such opportunities.

In the words of Nelson Mandela,“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else can. Sports can awaken hope where there was previously only despair.” This programme is a living example of the statement by one of our greatest statesmen and we are truly inspired by it. We hope to inspire many more people to use sport as medium for social change.
