TRADITIONALSPORTS & GAMES “CONQUERING THE FUTURE BY PRESERVING THE PAST”
LANGUAGE OFSPORT “ Sport is a universal language. At it’s best it can bring people together, no matter what their origin, background, religious beliefs or economic status. And when young people participate in sports or have access to physical education, they can experience real exhilaration, even as they learn the ideals of teamwork and tolerance. That is why the United Nations is turning more and more to the world of sport for help in our work for peace and our efforts to achieve and Millennium Development Goals. “ - UN Secretary-General : KOFI ANNAN
POWEROF SPORT “Sport has the Power to Change the World, The Power to Inspire, The Power to Unite People In a way little else can. It speaks to people in a language they understand. Sport can create hope, Where there was once only despair. It breaks down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of Discrimination”. The beloved, MADIBA: NELSON MANDELA
