This holiday season, join me by helping children without fathers grow up with positive experiences and father-figures in their lives. And I'm kicking off the campaign with a $50,000 match.
Ubuntu Football was born in response to a crisis of fatherlessness in South African society, where 60% of children are growing up without a father in the home.
Fatherlessness can increase a child’s risk of low self-esteem, impaired cognitive and academic development, risky sexual behavior, depression and other emotional disorders. (SARRI)
We are dreaming and hope for the day where every child in South Africa has a positive father-figure in their lives.
