AMANDLA EduFootball

AMANDLA creates safe spaces that bring together the powers of football and learning to empower youth and change lives.

AMANDLA EduFootball (AMANDLA) is an international non-profit organisation based in South Africa and Germany. Its award-winning approach to youth development – the Safe-Hub® Social Franchise Model – is designed to disrupt the intergenerational cycles of poverty, unemployment and inequality that trap young people growing up in disadvantaged communities. AMANDLA creates safe spaces that bring together the powers of football and learning to empower youth and change lives.

Laureus South Africa co-funds components of the Fair Play Football Programme at AMANDLA’s Safe-Hub in Diepsloot, Johannesburg. The Fair Play Football Programme promotes positive values and sportsmanship through 5-a-side football, life skills based football training, and a Fair Play point system. It is the foundation of the Safe-Hub’s holistic programme model. The Fair Play Football Programme aims to improve the physical health of young people, to strengthen their value system and to provide increased prospects for thriving, belonging and engaging.
