Mamelodi, Pretoria, 9 September 2015: The third edition of the Momentum eKasi Cup Challenge saw hosts the Unlimited Titans play against their Gauteng rivals, the Bizhub Highveld Lions, at the Mamelodi Cricket Oval.

As part of a newly formed partnership with the Unlimited Titans, UNICEF South Africa will work on programmes which will help the players and coaches of the Mamelodi Cricket Project develop life skills, leadership skills and team building skills.

The Mamelodi community, including learners from local schools, were present to show their support.

Through UNICEF’s Sports for Development (S4D) programme, children who are part of the Mamelodi Cricket Project will be able to address social issues, issues of violence and mitigate risky behavior amongst adolescents through physical activities.

Tournaments like the eKasi challenge hosted in local communities encourage and expose young people to the opportunities that come with participating in sport.
