Masibambane Foundation.

The Masibambane Foundation was established in 2002 as a registered Section 21 entity and is a recognized South African Public Benefit Organization (PBO) and Non-Governmental Organization (NGO).

The Academy’s vision is to create a platform for sport development in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town in order to offer individuals from different cultures and socio-economical backgrounds the opportunity to grow and develop together on the sport field. Over the past 18 years MSF had the vision to utilize sport as means, to develop a culture of “ Masibambane” working together.

“Who play together stay together.”

The opportunity to participate in and enjoy sport and play is a human right as per the Charter for Physical Education and Sport adopted by UNESCO in 1978. Sport and Play is a key tool for development cutting across all human and social barriers. Engagement, learning and development through sport are 100 percent guaranteed irrespective of age, gender, culture and ability. The benefits of sport are many – from physical and mental health to development of team work and leadership abilities to building of confidence.

Arts have partner with the Durbanville/Belville Rugby club and support their Masibambane Foundation.

Benefits of sport and play are huge and hence sport has been linked to The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). These are the world’s time-bound and quantified targets for addressing extreme poverty in its many dimensions – income poverty, hunger, disease, lack of adequate shelter, and exclusion – while promoting gender equality, education, and environmental sustainability.

Sport for Social Development is a method of bringing about social change through the use of sports. Sport and play are used as tools for peace and development. Sport and play help children learn lifelong skills, empower women and communities, and remove discrimination. Sport can be used as a tool to reach personal and community goals.
