I am fundraising for Caleb Philander, who is 14 years old and lives in Hillview, Cape Town situated on the Cape Flats. He is a passionate and talented young boy who loves soccer. He is the eldest son to His Parents Peter and Jane Philander. He hopes to one day play for the national team of South Africa. Caleb has been selected to play in the TTD Dubai and Manchester Cup from 1 April 2020 to 15 April 2020.
We would like Caleb to experience this opportunity of a lifetime. He comes from an area ridden with gang violence on the Cape Flats and as a young man, he has chosen to pursue sports and remain focussed in school in order to actualise a different future for himself.
Soccer is his passion, which offers him a healthy and focussed extracurricular opportunity. He is also very talented at it and one hopes to play for the national team. He was the recipient of the award Sportsman of the Year in 2018.
Funds need to be raised by January 2020. The South African Schools Football Association, Cape Town- District Central Football Team Management has issued a letter stipulating that the District Central international Tour 2020 will cost R48000 which will include the following:
- Air Ticket,
- Travel Insurance,
- Accommodation(Breakfast, lunch and dinner),
- 2 excursions (Dubai and Manchester) and
- Clothing (Tracksuit, playing kit, Backpack and T-shirt).
- The R2000 Extra will contribute to some spending money.
The funds raised for Caleb will mean so much to him, he will be able to experience this amazing opportunity and it will have a positive impact on his life trajectory. He will be able to experience a different environment and country from that of his own, South Africa. He is also the first person in his family to get this opportunity to travel overseas. The entire family is rooting for him.
*Funds raised will be paid directly to SASFA*
