Soweto Soccer Initiative
The Soweto Soccer Initiative is a spinnoff project that aims to support the Freedom Charter Foundation Soccer Club in Kliptown with donations in kind. With the current focus in Germany, the company DIE GEWÄSSER-EXPERTEN! collect from Lohmar near Cologne used football clothing: cleats, jerseys, camisole, pants, gauntlets, shin guards, goalkeeper gloves, balls and much more.
The Freedom Charter Foundation Soccer Club was founded in 2016 by Elias Mokhabi and Sithembiso Yingwane and offers around 80 children the opportunity to use their talent and to do sports in community. The donations are transported by Ingo Nienhaus to Kliptown and benefit the children.
Last year 2019 DIE GEWÄSSER-EXPERTEN! already brought new soccer balls to South Africa. In Germany, the initiative has so far been mainly supported by two clubs: 1. Göppinger Sportverein 1895 e.V. from near Stuttgart and SSV Homburg-Nümbrecht from near Cologne.
The initiative is also supported by Steven Helaimia (be-better-coaching).
