Tenk Loubser (Cape Town) recently made a donation to the Joshua Foundation in support of its community projects. The Foundation has developed a mentorship programme which uses rugby skills complemented by a strong life skills component as a medium to encourage youth to reach their full potential.
The programme is being offered at three high schools: Beacon Hill High in Mitchells Plain as well as Luhlaza High and Manyano High in Khayelitsha.
The Joshua Foundation was founded in 2007 by well-known rugby players Eddie Andrews and Tonderai Chavhanga. Although they came from disadvantaged backgrounds, they have achieved success in their sporting careers. Given their background and their successes, a platform has been created for them to engage with youth in disadvantaged communities and to act as role models.
Handing over the donation were Gerrit van Rhyn (far left) and Willie Smith (far right) of TLA Cape Town. With them (f.l.t.r.) were Joshua Foundation representatives Ashlene Pingelly, Eddie Andrews and Garth van Rooyen.
