A healthy body, a healthy mind. This is the philosophy behind the Sports for Development programme, which is now in its fourth year at Senaoane Secondary School in Soweto, South Africa. The school has come a long way since being identified as the most critical school for violence in Gauteng Province in 2007.
Sports for Development was one of the interventions implemented to address this, and to help improve the academic success levels of children. It is supported by UNICEF together with the Department of Basic Education, and other partners such as Let's Play, Total South Africa, International Inspiration and Mango Airlines.
