Community Development & Upliftment Through ‘DISKI’
DISKI Development Projects is a Cape Town-based non-profit organisation which utilises football as the vehicle to drive self-empowerment for all students within the underprivileged communities of Cape Town.
As a non-profit organisation we rely heavily on the funding of sponsors to continuously empower the youth. With assistance we are able to offer qualified training, coaching and development football programmes to a large number of boys and girls.
We have adopted a holistic football programme which also addresses the prevailing problems within the students’ homes, schools and communities. As part of the programme we conduct sessions from which we listen and provide various outlets to solve constantly experienced problems.
