The Beast Foundation assists young people in forging their future by giving them access to sports training, skills development and education opportunities.
WE DO SPORT
The values of team sports have always been about the pleasure of participating; the courage and skill that the game demands; the passion for a sport that enriches the lives of all involved; and the lifelong friendships forged through a shared interest in the game. The Beast Foundation wants to support children from underprivileged backgrounds by teaching and coaching them, and providing them with the education and other skills they need to succeed. This will be achieved by The Beast Foundation Annual Bootcamps for both Rugby and Basketball.
Young players complete integrated learning bootcamps to improve their leadership and life skills, sports skills, attitudes and behaviours in a safe and structured way. Being part of a team provides disadvantaged children with access to an expanded support network and gives them an opportunity to carry their learnings back to their communities, get scouted on national and international levels, become future coaches and expand themselves in various careers.
WE DO EDUCATION
Loyalty, leadership, teamwork, dedication and perseverance are all skills learned on the sports field that can help a child become a functional adult. Thus, The Beast Foundation seeks to give children access to educational platforms, aiding them in their growth and development..
One of the primary obstacles to youth progressing is having the financial resources to continue with a higher education. The Beast Foundation, through partnering with higher education institutions and corporations, provides educational scholarships, links beneficiaries to bursary opportunities and facilitates exchange programmes with international institutions.
The Beast Foundation understands that life skills are essential to achieving healthy and productive outcomes and so skills-based education is integrated into every one of The Beast Foundation’s programmes.
The Beast Foundation advocates and has a focus on various areas affecting young people and seasoned players, such as:
// Career decision-making
// Developing marketable skills
// Setting realistic and actionable goals
// Building a professional network
