The Chevrolet Ute Force, in partnership with the Dreamfields Project, a non-profit organisation that focuses on soccer development, rolled out its coaching workshop in Port Elizabeth, with 16 primary schools from around the city taking part.
John Makeke, a local teacher at Bopang-Kgotso Primary School and other teachers just like him across Vosloorus are working together with Dreamfields and the Chevrolet Ute Force to bring joy and hope to the lives of primary school children in the area through the game of football.
The 2010 football World Cup in South Africa may be a distant memory, but its legacy lives on through the Fifa World Cup Legacy Trust. In the first allocation of funds, 14 organisations got some financial assistance. This has had a huge impact on the lives of some of the country's poorest children.
Chevrolet has teamed up with Dreamfields to use the beautiful game of football to inspire school children at two schools in the Free State province. Young players will be given access to donated soccer kits that include soccer balls, bibs and training equipment.
A soccer kit, a field, a league and regular sport - as well as the efforts of teachers, coaches and especially Dreamfields - is changing the lives of marginalised children across rural South Africa.
