The Zwide ‘Siyaphakama’ Schools Project is the Kolisi Foundation’s inaugural Education and Sports Development project. The project, named for Siya Kolisi and his mother, Phakama, ‘Siyaphakama’ – meaning We Are Rising – seeks to address the multitude of challenges facing township youth by creating a tailor-made programme to address physical education, malnutrition, academic education, life skills and youth employment to help children and youth exit the poverty cycle and become active, positive contributors to society. The project is a collaborative initiative between the Kolisi Foundation, Ubuntu Pathways, United Through Sport, and KaziBantu, with a mission to help develop healthy, active, emotionally and academically stronger children while contributing to the broader development of the Zwide Community and beyond. The first 12 months of Siyaphakama have been full and have brought much excitement into the school day. Next will see the inclusion of a literacy support component into the project, addressing the lack of fencing at the schools and introducing after-sports snacks as increased physical activity has increased the children’s nutritional needs.
