Sportstec operates with the mission of bringing about social change through sports. Founded in 2006, Sportstec has partnered with governmental and private organizations alike (including Nike and Unicef) to promote using sport as a vehicle to address positive youth development, physical education, sportsmanship, life skills, and coach/teacher education, as well as assist with the systemic growth of sport development structures around South Africa.

Donations go to sporting equipment replacement and upkeep (such as soccer nets and balls, uniforms, and outreach) and to Sportstec’s after school program, helping to provide homework help, guest speakers, and life skills materials such as sanitary pads and HIV testing.
