With Mavu we introduce school sport, establish and coordinate competitions, and assist in organizing community events. We also support individual athletes who are in need of support, and facilitate workshops for coaches. In any case, we add value to South Africa’s existing structures, but stand out because of our main focus on the disadvantaged (rural) areas and individuals.
