The club caters for children from the surrounding informal settlements like Joe Slovo, Dwesi Extention 7 and Kwa-Noxolo.  The HMS Department did a sport shoe collection drive among staff and students and collected 35 pairs of running shoes. The shoes, as well as a donation of 50 cones, 2 stopwatches, a set of ladders and exercise charts were handed over to Mr Yawa on Thursday 28 August at the Kwadwesi sports fields.  Biokineticists Gwen Raffan and Mteteleli Biko, assisted by Honours students Sandisiwe Labatala and Larissa Adams took the learners through their paces demonstrating the correct warming-up exercises and drills to improve athletics performance. The HMS department has undertaken to assist Mr Yawa further with the training of their coaches.
