AFYA was formed in an attempt to remedy a community hindered by drug & alcohol abuse, teenage pregnancy and unemployment. Our vision is to use the power of sports to give hope to this community and change lives positively.
It was founded in 2014 in a small location called Nomathamsanqa (Addo) neighbour to the Addo Elephant National Park, famous for being one of the largest National parks in South Africa and the only one that is home to all of the big 7.
AFYA’s main objective is the development of the individual as a whole, using football as a tool. The objective is to provide the Addo community with a football program that prepares the youth emotionally and physically, not only for sport, but also by providing life skills and tools to encourage these youths to pursue a career through university, to advance in their workplace, or to succeed in life.
