Morgenster United Football Club was created to get kids off the streets and participating in sports activities to help them mentally. Its been an amazing journey being able to help these kids through the many challenges they face, and to be able to skill them with something that they love playing – soccer.
The Soweto Uprising, also known as 16 June, where a series of protests led by high school students in South Africa that began on the morning of 16 June 1976. To the brave youth that took part, some losing their lives, an annual Youth Day was set to commemorate their sacrifices. June is often referred to as Youth Month and Heart FM through our 16 Days For Youth initiative emphasising the message of how important our youth are. It’s not just about commemoration, we’ll be celebrating the youth of today, the amazing advances young people have led the world in. We asked you to nominate individuals who are helping and giving back in various communities, and we received many nominations for Gary Majavie from Morgenster United Football Club in Mitchells Plain.
Suga called Gary Majavie and Wayne Gabriels from the club to find out more details about it and what are some of the challenges they are currently faced with. Gary explained that their funds have been running really low and they need these funds to be able to buy and supply training equipment for the kids. Suga shared some love and support to Morgenster with a generous donation of R10 000 towards sporting equipment for the kids!
