The general passiveness of the youth towards community
The general neglect of young people in community development
The general sense of worthlessness and lack of self-confidence
in their ability to initiate things and succeed.
The general lack of respect amongst themselves.
|Mkhangeli Ngoma Foundation [MNF] resolved
to initiate a process of ensuring active involvement
of the youth in community development. Sports has been
identified to be suitable medium through which young
people can be engaged in community development, hence
MNF initiated an annual Easter tournament, to be known
as Mkhangeli Ngoma Challenge Cup.
|The tournament targets all the clubs that
are not affiliated to any league due to mainly financial
All participating clubs are required to identify a practical
and implementable community project within their respective
communities, e.g. Mighty Birds FC: Project Agriculture,
New Lyndale FC: Poultry, Hot Fire FC: Policy Forum,
All participating clubs are required to pay a registration
fee that is agreed upon by all stakeholders.
There is a requirement to send a list of only locals
in the respective teams.
| The tournament is officially opened by
guest and Honourable speakers, varying from councilors,
mayors and MEC's.
An official opening ceremony is held at the Sports Grounds,
with the hosting team playing an opening game.
The seeding method is then used for the subsequent draw.
The tournament is held over Easter week-ends annually.
| The young men that are playing soccer
in the registered clubs are required to initiate community
development projects aiming to close the gap between
the sporting young members of the community and the
parent component of the community.
It is our belief that the more the youth is involved
in community development projects the more meaningful
will be their role in the eyes of their parents and
the community at large.
This will also strengthen the bond and foster mutual
respect and promote understanding of these important
sectors of our society.
Besides that, during the tournament economic activities
are encouraged so as to allow the locals to earn a living.
