Charity Information

Alcohol and drugs are the root cause of almost all of South Africa’s ills: gangsterism, crime, HIV/AIDS, domestic violence, broken homes and unemployment etc., which are actively prevalent in the lives of children in disadvantaged communities.

To a large part, these ills are accepted as part of a natural life path, where there is a culture you live by with no alternatives or perceived options for these children.

We as the JAG Foundations utilise sport and play as a catalyst for change, exposing children in disadvantaged communities to an alternate life path. Our mentoring, coaching, knowledge and organised sport and play programmes, target the issues of alcohol, drugs and gangsterism head-on by showing children the real and attainable opportunity of an alternative life path, that can give them hope and an escape from a societal predisposition of their future.

Our programmes utilise Athletics, Running, Cycling, and Rugby as codes or disciplines to expose the alternative life path, by imparting paramount core values learned through sport, play, and fun. These vehicles take form under the brands Mighty Metres (basics movement development – Athletics and Running), JAGRunners (Cross Country coach development), JAGRiders (Cycling), JAGRugby (Rugby), and JAGBullyProof (Ball games).

Our programmes have been successfully rolled out and sustained since 2006, covering predominantly the Cape Flats area including Bonteheuwel, Mitchels Plain, Fir Grove, Belhar, and Lavender Hill to name a few. We implement facilitator-training programme, where key individuals are identified from within the rollout community, trained as mentors under the guise of trainers in the philosophy and mission of the JAG Foundation, trained to correctly implement the various JAG Foundation programmes, and up-skilled as accredited sports coaches. These facilitators are then employed and recognised as JAG Foundation Mentors and are designated a satellite turn-key programme to run and implement under the continuous monitoring and management of the JAG Foundation.

Charity Information

The Velokhaya Life Cycling Academy – or Velokhaya for short – is a not-for-profit organisation based in Khayelitsha, South Africa.

We use our cycling-based programmes to involve township youth in a positive, after-school activity. Our aim is to give children from disadvantaged communities the skills and opportunities they need to make a success of their lives. We use the sport of cycling to teach them important life skills such as discipline, determination, dedication, teamwork and how to win and lose etcetera. Sport also teaches children about resilience and perseverance; it gives them the opportunity to become physically and emotionally stronger and it also teaches them to strive for excellence, to be gracious in victory and to persevere in defeat. In other words, it help us grow champions on and off the bike.
