During the month of April, three of our students were given the opportunity to visit the Eden Project in the United Kingdom. Our thanks to the British High Commission who made our trip possible!
We are very proud to announce that our Dibanisa Project has been shortlisted for the Beyond Sport Awards: Sport for the Environment Award. We are thrilled to be one of only three shortlisted programmes worldwide in this category.
This 7 week programme is a collaboration between the Football Foundation, Grootbos Foundation and Dyer Island Conservation in conjunction with our dedicated partners, Coaches Across Continents.
The programme focuses on teaching disadvantaged children a love for nature, focusing on our fynbos and marine environments. The children are taken on a variety of outings to teach them more about the value of plants, the Marine Big 5, sustainability and farming in fynbos environment, a beach clean-up and an arts and crafts lesson using recycled materials.
Congratulations to our Dibanisa Team and our partners Coaches Across Continents – hard work and dedication has paid off since the programme’s inception 3 years ago. The winners will be announced at the beginning of September!
