Meadowlands Academy FC

The Holt Trust supports Meadowlands Academy FC in Soweto SA, a talent development platform for 150 children with teams operating from the ages of 6 to 25. The Academy is managed by Chippa Laka a former professional soccer player with the Orlando Pirates.

The Academy not only builds outstanding soccer talent but via an education program - Enlightened Leaders -provides a holistic approach to better life skills including literacy and numeracy teaching. The program also includes an insight into healthier lifestyle living. The program looks to be a deterrent for all the local community to avoid the lure of criminal activity and substance abuse.
