Sports, Music and Arts
The Motsepe Foundation is committed to helping to build a well-rounded society. It believes strongly that success cannot simply being measured in economic terms and is, therefore, committed to promoting sport and the Arts in all communities.
In the words of former president Nelson Mandela: “Sports have the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sports can create hope, where there was once only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination. Sports is the game of lovers.”
The Motsepe Foundation believes that through sport, it can bring communities together, it can help inculcate discipline, drive and passion in young people and it can help bring pride, joy and fun to everyone.
Football and netball are popular activities among school-going youth. And the Foundation believes that young people who participate in sport tend to do well in their studies. They also develop strong physical, mental and social skills that stand them in good stead for their future careers.
