The orphanages and street kids are sidelined when it comes to sports programs. We made it our mission to bring these kids in the orphanages into limelight.  The program will also be used as a hub of sports men and women where the national sports council can tap for qualify sports men and women. STAESA the initiators of this project have become aware of an increase in circumstances of abuse, trafficking and neglect involving children in the communities and their surrounding villages. STAESA felt the need to use this program to provide a service to such kids, which would help decrease or alleviate these social vices as well as strain on the victims and their families.

PLEASE NOTE

There is real poverty in South Africa and you will soon realize that you are far richer and more fortunate than most local people you meet. You will probably attract your fair share of souvenir beggars, but try and take the time to meet ordinary people going about their day to day business too. The experience will be worth it. Don't be afraid to step out of your house, just take some precautions.

Weather in South Africa

South Africa's climatic conditions generally range from Mediterranean in the southwestern corner of South Africa to temperate in the interior plateau, and subtropical in the northeast. A small area in the northwest has a desert climate. Most of the country has warm, sunny days and cool nights

When to go 

You can join us anytime in the year! Anytime in the month! Anytime in the week

Kind of clothes you should  pack for your trip to South Africa

Jeans and Trousers:  blue jeans, cotton trousers, khaki trousers, Light Shirts and Blouses:  T-Shirts, short sleeve shirts and  long sleeved shirts. Shorts also for your free days.  Pack both summer and winter cloths. South Africa weather is unpredictable. You have the four seasons in a day.  Socks and underwear:  Shoes:  Good leather shoes, sandals, and a lightweight pair of Hiking boots if you will doing some hiking.

Kind of luggage you should take

It all begins with the right suitcases or suitcase.  It also depends where you coming from.  If you are coming from North America you get to bring 2 suitcases and 50 pounds each, from Europe it is almost half that.  It means one has to be practical and take in mind what your plans are once you arrive in Africa, where you will be going and what you will be doing while here.

Keep all essentials like the pill, malaria pills, essential medicine, debit and credit cards, camera and your toothbrush in your hand luggage.  Also put one set of clothing if the unthinkable happens that your luggage is temporarily lost.   Money Belt: One that will allow you to carry your passport also. Do not wear your money on the outside of your clothing.
