TEAM TALK with Florian Zech & Jakob Schlichtig Managing Directors AMANDLA EduFootball e.V.
In all beginnings dwells a magic force...* What started as a small ambitious project five years ago has grown into a well-established and internationally recognised organisation in the ‘Sport for Development’ sector. Today, AMANDLA EduFootball provides over 2500 children every week, within two South African provinces, access to safe-hubs of holistic learning and development. The United Nations, the International Committee of the Red Cross, Rotary International, the Philipp Lahm Foundation, and the Oliver Kahn Foundation are some of our most well-known partners amongst the growing AMANDLA stakeholder network. This strong network enables us to pursue our vision of ‘Global Equal Opportunity’. To achieve this vision AMANDLA engages socially and economically disadvantaged young people through innovative football-based education programmes. The knowledge and skills young people gain through participating in AMANDLA’s holistic programmes play a critical role in improving their future prospects, giving them a better chance of breaking the cycle of poverty. 2011 has held many highlights and exciting new developments. These achievements motivate us to critically review the effectiveness of our work on an ongoing basis. To carry this magic force into the future, we continue to innovatively improve on the tried-and-tested. We are thankful to everyone who has been part of, and continues to be part of this journey. A big thank you also goes out to the AMANDLA-Team who have made AMANDLA EduFootball into what it is today through their ambition, integrity, and hard work.
“No matter where you look, there is so much to do, to change and to improve. The world is waiting for groundbreaking social innovations. Not us. We strive to be a leader in innovating them.”

VISION & MISSION VISION: Global EQUal oPPoRTUNITY AMANDLA EduFootball e.V. initiates, implements, and supports educational projects in South Africa. In doing so the non-profit organisation pursues its vision of
‘Global Equal Opportunity’. The aim of all its activities is to tackle social inequality through the innovative fusion of education and football. Using the power of football AMANDLA creates safe-hubs of development and learning for disadvantaged young people. The organisation’s holistic football-based programme model stimulates and encourages young people to strive for a better future. The strong moral concept underpinning all AMANDLA programmes reinforces universal values and norms, often lacking in destabilised and non-existent family structures.
MISSION: YOUTH DEVELOPMENT ‘AMANDLA’ means ‘Power’ in Xhosa and Zulu, two of South Africa’s most widely spoken languages. ‘EduFootball’ describes the fusion of the two main programme themes: education and football. The name ‘AMANDLA EduFootball’ communicates the vehicle to achieve the vision of empowered youth.
AMANDLA EduFootball‘s dynamic approach is founded on community participation, shared expertise, innovative thinking, on-going reflection and replication.

FAIR PLAY - DEVELOPMENT OF A SYSTEM OF VALUES The Fair Play Football Programme is the foundation of AMANDLA EduFootball’s holistic Programme-Pyramid, and forms an integral part of the ‘safe-hub’ concept. Through the Fair Play Football Programme a physical and emotional safe space is provided for the programme beneficiaries. The primary programme aim is to provide high quality football in a safe and fun environment. This lays the foundation for a child friendly hub of learning and development. The programme consists of two components: high quality football training and leagues, and a points system that rewards pro-social behaviour on and off the football pitch. The AMANDLA ‘Fair Play-System’ is underpinned by values such as respect, dealing with frustration and setbacks, and teamwork. The points captured in the ‘Fair Play Scorecard’ (see graphic to the right), translate the teams’ match conduct into points. This allows the teams to excel through both pro-social behaviour and football performance. Fair Play points are tallied throughout the leagues and the Fair Play champions are rewarded at the end of the season. Strengthening pro-social values is the intended outcome of the Fair Play Football Programme. This provides the framework for more in-depth personal development work in the Life-Skills Programme. In 2011 over 50 specially trained Fair Play facilitators delivered a high quality programme. 2500 young girls and boys participated in eight Fair Play Football Leagues over a period of 10 months. The competitive leagues provided an exciting atmosphere and challenged participants both physically and behaviourally.

LIFE-SKILLS - PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT & TOOLKIT Living up to the organisation’s name AMANDLA EduFootball integrates its educational objectives into the weekly football training sessions. Paired with the Fair Play Football Programme, the Life-Skills Programme aims to develop young people’s sense of self, strengthen their relationships with others, and build a plan for their way forward. In addition to this personal development journey, over the course of the year the beneficiaries improve their knowledge on health and safety, and are provided ongoing mentorship in making positive life choices. AMANDLA’s innovative Life-Skills curriculum is divided into three phases: 1. IDENTITY: The first phase focuses on building the young persons’ understanding of their own identity. 2. CONNECTIONS: Phase two unpacks the connections a young person establishes with their family, peers and the greater community. It explores how these connections influence their lives and how the young person can build a strong support network, based on healthy and trustful relationships. 3. WAY FORWARD: Phase 3 concludes the personal development journey through exploring the ‘Way Forward’. This phase aims to build capacity around the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to take control of one’s future. In 2011 approximately 1500 beneficiaries graduated from AMANDLA’s Life-Skills Programme. These young people have developed crucial social competencies, have defined their personal vision, and are progressing on the path of a successful future.
“It‘s great that so many children in the township are participating and benefiting from the AMANDLA football and life-skills programme, It‘s really important that this should become a positive and sustainable element in their lives.“ PhIlIPP lahM, Captain of the German national football team, who supports aMaNdla through his foundation

LEADERSHIP ‘ROLE MODELS‘
YOUTH LEADERSHIP - DEVELOPING ROLE MODELS AMANDLA EduFootball’s Youth Leadership Programme, innovatively uses the power of football as a tool to alleviate poverty among young people. The South African 2010 Presidential Report shows that in the Western Cape youth unemployment stands at over 50%, with insufficient skills development opportunities being one of the main causes. In response to this AMANDLA’s 2011 Youth Leadership Programme provided 30 young people, with exceptional leadership potential, access to 10 months of personal coaching, accredited training and work experience opportunities. This opportunity significantly improved the future prospects of these 30 young community leaders. The practical work experience gained by the young leaders is achieved through their active involvement in the facilitation of AMANDLA’s Fair Play Football and Life-Skills Programmes. Simultaneously they contribute to AMANDLA’s holistic programme model through providing strong role modeling for AMANDLA’s younger programme participants. An important success factor within this programme is ongoing mentorship provided for each beneficiary. This ongoing guidance, paired with a strong exit strategy, results in a well-structured future development path.

The strength of the Leadership Programme stems from a high level of participation from young people, resulting in a strong sense of responsibility and ownership at all levels. AMANDLA EduFootball celebrates the outstanding success of a few individual Leadership graduates:
In 2011 30 yo uth became role models and visionarie s ROLE MODEL S| MENTORS LEADERSHIP SKILLS
Junior Leader Tanduxolo was invited to participate in an international youth exchange programme in Germany. This life changing opportunity broadened his horizons and enabled him to exchange ideas with young community leaders from all over the world
Senior Leader Nosipho has successfully qualified to study law at the University of the Western Cape, South Africa. With this achievement she is effectively progressing on the path of taking control of her personal future and paving the way to meaningful employment
Senior Leader and staff member Noluvuyo ‘Nkazi’ Dudumashe was selected as one of 28 youth leaders from a variety of countries to participate in the United Nations Office on Peace and Development Youth Leadership Camp in Doha, Qatar. This tremendous achievement allowed her to further advocate for the importance of female empowerment through sport, and to learn from the abundance of inspiring youth leaders who participated in the 10-day camp

NIGHT LEAGUE ‘CRIME PREVENTION‘
“The facility has made huge inroads in the proactive addressing of children and their time. The fact that the time is spent in a developmental fashion and positive environment also alleviated the problems of criminal activities.“
ColoNel Colo PIeT BerGh, head of the Khayelitsha Police
400 young m en joined the Night Le ague every weekend
AMANDLA EduFootball’s Night League, known by ‚Crime Prevention League’ or ‘CPL’ throughout the community is the first of its kind in South Africa. The unique, inSPORT AGAIN novative approach of night football in Khayelitsha, an area with one of the highest ST DRUGS & VIO crime rates in South Africa, has been a resounding success. The league is played LENCE on Friday and Saturday nights between 19h00 – 24h00. It provides up to 400 young men with an attractive pro-social activity in an environment that has little other recreational options for young people. The night league aims to support young men in making positive life choices enabling a safer community environment. The consumption of alcohol and drugs is prohibited and the football distracts them from anti-social behaviour that they are exposed to. Besides the individual impact on the participants, the night league contributed immensely to promoting a peaceful atmosphere and making the community a safer place on weekends.

“Since establishing the AMANDLA Safe-Hub the total number of criminal incidents registered in the area decreased by
18,95%“ Source: South African Police Service, Khayelitsha
One highlight of the crime prevention league is the annual 24-hour tournament which takes place on May 1st every year. Its aim is to raise awareness about the importance of creating pro- social recreational activities for young people. 2011’s event saw more than 1500 participants and many enthusiastic spectators pass through the gate to participate one of the 292 football games that were played during the 24 hours. The event was also supported by high profile local politicians such as the Provincial Minister of Community Safety Mr. Albert Fritz (now Provincial Minister of Social Development). Mr. Fritz emphasised that more such projects are needed in South Africa: “We need this in all our townships – an opportunity for youngsters to take part in sports, so that we can change youngsters into good footballers, good sports persons instead of criminals. I applaud AMANDLA EduFootball for their initiative.”

& SUCCESS STORIES PASCH TOURNAMENT – Intercultural Exchange for young footballers from Khayelitsha township 2011 marked an exciting event for a group of AMANDLA EduFootball’s participants. On invitation of the Federal Foreign Office of Germany, the winning team of the 2010 PASCH tournament set off on a trip to Germany in June and July 2011. The PASCH Festival in Berlin brought together the winning teams from the six regional PASCH tournaments which took place in South Africa, India, Cameroon, Israel, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Brazil. The two week trip was dedicated to intercultural exchange, historical exploration and educational football activities. It offered the participants a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet peers from all around the globe (see image above).
MICHELLE OBAMA & DESMOND TUTU VISIT On the 23rd of June 2011 AMANDLA was honoured by the visit of the US First Lady Michelle Obama and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Desmond Tutu. After their speeches the First Lady and the Peace Nobel Prize Winner met with Florian Zech, Co-Founder and

ADIDAS EXCHANGE PROGRAMME Sharing expertise around football & social change, developing key capacities, as well as high quality football training (Coerver Coaching) were the key focus areas of 2011’s adidas Exchange Programme, hosted by AMANDLA. Driven by their shared vision for social change, over 50 coaches and managers from 7 Southern African countries gathered at AMANDLA EduFootball’s facility in Khayelitsha to further enhance the ‘development through football movement’.
BEYOND SPORT AWARD & SUMMIT In early December 2011, Cape Town was host to arguably the most exciting gathering in the ‘Sportfor-Development’ world; the Beyond Sport Summit 2011. Even more exciting for AMANDLA, which was chosen as the flagship organisation of the summit, was the opportunity to welcome three of South Africa’s biggest sports idols, Lucas Radebe, Oscar Pistorius & Bryan Habana, as well as many global leaders in the sport for development movement to our project in Khayelitsha. AMANDLA was honoured to have participated in such a prestigious summit. It has allowed the organisation to incorporate a large number of new partnerships, ideas, and inspiration into its daily operations. In 2012 AMANDLA strives to build on last year’s achievement of being shortlisted for the UNICEF Sport for Education Award. AMANDLA’s unique approach to Crime Prevention has been recognised by Beyond Sport and secured the organisation a nomination for 2012’s ‘Sport for Conflict Resolution Award’ shortlist.

NEW PROJECT WITH PHILIPP LAHM FOUNDATION November 2011 marked the start to an exciting new project. In partnership with the Philipp Lahm Foundation, AMANDLA is managing the ‘Shongi Soccer’ project situated between the townships Soul City and Tudor Shaft, south of Johannesburg. © Philipp Lahm-Stiftung/
Awakened by a visit to Photo: Stefan Maria Rother South African townships in 2007, Philipp Lahm, captain of the German national football team and the FC Bayern Munich, initiated the Philipp Lahm Foundation (PLF) to support ‘sport for education’ projects in Germany and South Africa. In 2009, only two years after its birth, the Foundation built its first football field for youth from the townships Soul City and Tudorshaft. Impressed by AMANDLA’s vast experience and success in the ‘sport for development’ sector, and convinced by the organisations’ unique concept on how to effectively combine Football and Life-Skills education, the PLF chose to hand over the management of the ‘Shongi Soccer’ project to AMANDLA EduFootball. As in Cape Town, at the Shongi site, the organisation uses the power of football and continuous mentorship to equip young people with the Life-Skills and knowledge to deal with difficult social circumstances, increase their career opportunities and provide them with access to information on personal development, health, and safety. We are very excited about this new venture and the expansion of our unique approach to education.
EVALUATION & QUALITy MANAGEMENT
FIGURATIVE EVALUATION REPORT 2011
AMANDLA’s Monitoring & Evaluation strategy consists of a variety of activities. Quantitative data of all programme activities is collected and collated on a daily basis. Additionally qualitative baseline information through focus groups, interviews, questionnaires and observation is gathered for all four sub-programmes prior to the onset of activities. The same set of evaluation activities are conducted again at the end of programme implementation. The data is processed in a bi-annual and annual programme review where targets are analysed and implementation strategies reviewed.
ASSURING & EXPANDING qUALITY AMANDLA EduFootball’s programme reach has grown significantly over the last few years. In 2011 a record number of 2500 disadvantaged young people participated in the programmes on a weekly basis. One of the factors this growth can be attributed to is the high level of youth ownership. The beneficiaries’ involvement in the design of the programmes guarantees that their needs are considered and met. To assure a high quality of service delivery, AMANDLA rigorously monitors and evaluates the impact of all its activities. This ensures ongoing review and development of the organisation’s programmes. The implementation of a robust monitoring and evaluation strategy, aligned with the theory of change, allows the organisation to critically analyse the impact of its programming.

Does the Football Field in the AMANDLA programmes offer you a safe space?
PRE-SEASON TEST No
I don‘t know
POST-SEASON TEST No Answer
9% I don‘t know
General questionnaires implemented pre- and post-season allow AMANDLA to acquire a general consensus about specific programme aspects. The above question concludes that AMANDLA’s programmes offer a safe space to participants already prior the 2011 season (70% ‘Yes’). This could be further increased throughout the season (75% ‘Yes’).
SAMPLE CASE STUDY for the sub-programme „Life-Skills“ The following case study is taken from the 2011 evaluation report. It illustrates one of the tools being used for analysing how the programmes impact on the participants social skills. Thabo is 14 years old and is the captain of his school football team. He is a talented player and one day hopes to play in the PSL for his favourite team – Ajax Cape Town. A few of his friends have already dropped out of school and spend most of their time playing Football. Thabo struggles at school and feels like it is a waste of time for a future football player. What should Thabo do? Drop out of school to play more football with his friends Stay in school and hope a scout spots him playing for his school team Encourage his friends to come back to school so they can all play in the school team Come to school twice a week but spend the other three days playing football with his friends Read football coaching manuals that will help his academic skills and his football ability
A. B. C. D. E.
Interpretation: The case study shows that the AMANDLA Life-Skills programme significantly helps to promote the importance of education. It further indicates that the programme also encourages the participants to motivate each other to go to school. An overwhelming 75% majority of the interviewed participants identify answer B and C as the best solution to the scenario. This figure indicates that the young people understand the importance of attending school in order to achieve their goals in the future.

FINANCIAL REPORT TRANSPARENCY & CLARITY AS GUIDING PRINCIPLES The ongoing commitment and generous contributions from all its supporters was critical for AMANDLA EduFootball’s success in 2011. As a result of an efficient administrative structure, nearly 90% of all contributed funds were spent directly on programmes, benefitting over 2500 children and youth. A holistic and sustainable approach is the foundation of AMANDLA‘s philosophy, from programmes through to financial management. To ensure the continuation and development of the organisation‘s programmes AMANDLA strives to establish a broad base of funding through securing income streams from a variety of different sectors. The importance of transparency, and trustworthy sustainable relationships, is at the core of the AMANDLA EduFootball partnership management strategy.
FAIR PLAY IN ALL ACCOUNTS AMANDLA‘s main expenses in 2011 are similar to 2010. The provision of teaching materials, sports and other general programme equipment as well as the transport costs of the various teams account for the majority of programme costs. Additionally, AMANDLA invested significantly into the individuals who implement the programme activities: the trainers, programme coordinators and social workers. These people are on the ground working with the children on a daily basis. AMANDLA believes that employees free of external stress are able to truly excel in their work. For this reason AMANDLA makes a conscious effort to pay its employees fairly.

An important consideration is that the income, as well as the expenditures of the project AMANDLA KuLutsha (South African Non-Profit Organisation) is included in the figures below. Roughly 5% of all incoming funds as well as expenses of AMANDLA KuLutsha are not covered through the international AMANDLA EduFootball e.V. organisation, but raised and spent locally.

PROSPECTS 2012 - 20?? PROGRAMME DEVELOPMENT For the past five years AMANDLA EduFootball has supported young people on their personal development path through the provision of innovative football-based programming. The invaluable experience and knowledge gathered, serves as a platform for ongoing programme development. The aim of this review process is the production of easily adaptable, programmeand programme-support-systems that can be implemented globally. This will allow the global transfer of knowledge in the field of education, sport and development, moving closer to achieving the vision of ‘Global Equal Opportunity’. Simultaneously, the nongratuitous use of the programme- and programme-supportsystems in more developed regions will generate a sustainable income stream; enabling up-scaling of the programme model and significantly increasing its impact.
REPLICATION OF THE SAFE-HUB MODEL In the near future AMANDLA will focus on the replication of the ‘safe-hub’ model. Geographically, the focus for replication sites will be high-density urban and suburban slum areas. These areas have been identified as major ‘Hot-Spots’ of inequality and violence by international role players such as UN-HABITAT, The World Bank and UNICEF. Young people growing up in the above mentioned settings are regularly exposed to poor education, high levels of violence and crime, and wide spread exploitation and abuse. Inequality in cities is a fundamental problem, most often with the biggest impact being on young people. AMANDLA’s response to this global challenge is the ‘safe-hub’ model. It caters for young people growing up in these harsh conditions by offering them a safe space for their personal development to grow into change makers who are striving for global social and economic equality. Two crucial new partnerships with the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Oliver Kahn Foundation were formed in 2011/12. They support the organisation financially and at the same time play a key role in further developing AMANDLA EduFootball’s holistic programme model and researching its impact.
