Winners Park F.C
Organized by: Ben Quinn
Siyabonga Mbeke is the founder of Winners Park F.C and and an inspiration and mentor to so many kids in his local township Khayelitsha in South Africa. If you'd met him you'd be doing what we do... You'd be trying to help. Through football and the club he is working tirelessly to keep kids off the street and out of trouble. He is doing a bloody good job too and they play beautiful football
You will notice in the film that there isn't a lot of grass in the World of Winners Park FC and equipment is very hard to maintain. Raising league fees are hard every year. They dont need much, no Ferraris or Cristal. They just need the basics to keep the club going, getting the kids to do their homework, study, play and don't fall into drugs etc etc...
He does this and he has for years now, alone.... Siyabonga's community is losing kids drugs and alcohol each year but with support and structure we could help him make a real and permanent difference. Come on team. Let's help him out.... It won't cost much and will change so much for the few that could go on to change us all.
The program successfully keeps kids at school and out of strife but is on constant need of new equipment and League fees. In the fine words of Bob Geldof, " give us ya fecking money"
Thanks for the soap box time... Peace xxx
