On Wednesday, 13 February, Humanitarian Empowerment Fund (HEF) in association with SA soccer legends, held a soccer clinic at the Krugersdorp Correctional Centre.
Prisoners surrounded the fields in their orange attire as they cheered and encouraged fellow inmates being coached by some of their heroes.
Some of the senior prison officials were there in support and commended HEF for this undertaking and spoke of how events like this make a huge difference to the overall moral of the prisoners.
HEF uses sport as a touch point to provide opportunities for the less fortunate of communities. This is also contributes to keeping young people away from crime and drugs. At the same time, sport is being used in prisons to assist with or contribute towards rehabilitation of prisoners.
A soccer match between SA Soccer Legends and the Krugersdorp prison 11. Not to be missed!
