Their generosity, concern for youth development and tremendous support allows us to effectively serve the youth of South Africa and continue our progress toward an HIV-free generation.

FIFA Football for Hope
The Football for Hope programme, jointly orchestrated by FIFA and streetfootballworld, was created as a unique and global movement programme that uses the power of football to achieve sustainable social development. Their mission is to create a vibrant infrastructure in centres of excellence where Centre Host organizations use football as a unifying tool to deliver consistent public health and education programmes and support youth in improving their lives and their communities.
streetfootballworld is a social profit organization that promotes positive change through football. Founded in 2002, the non-governmental organization is a leading contributor to the field of Development through Football. At the heart of streetfootballworld is their network, which connects over 80 organisations worldwide that use football to address issues such as children's rights and education, anti-discrimination and social integration, the environment, health and peace building.
Christadelphian Meal A Day
Christadelphian Meal A Day (CMaD) supports sustainable social development projects in some of the poorest countries in the world. Operating primarily in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and South America, CMaD works with grass roots, locally run projects to overcome the problems of hunger, disease, destitution and homelessness. In addition, CMaD is also the sole supporter of a number of orphanges in Kenya and two specialist schools for the physically disabled, one in Cameroon and one in Kenya.
Iqraa Trust, established in 1994 by Albaraka Bank South Africa, is a registered trust. Over the years the Trust has facilitated and promoted capacity building within organizations by funding the development of infrastructure, equipment and the acquisition of skills. Their mission is to uplift the quality of life for all South Africans from impoverished backgrounds by promoting and supporting humanitarian programmes that are designed to help those who are most in need, to help themselves.
Sport for Social Change Network
The Sport for Social Change Network (SSCN) is a meeting point for dynamic organizations involved or interested in using sport as a tool to make social change happen. SSCN consists of regional coordination hubs that are currently being set up in Brazil, Eastern Africa, London and Southern Africa with the support of Nike and local partner with more nations to follow. Their vision is to be a key strategic partner spearheading the delivery of social impact through sport.
Canada Africa Prevention Trials Network
The Canada Africa Prevention Trials Network (CAPT-N) is a network funded by the Government of Canada through which Canadian and African researchers and institutions work together to build capacity for HIV & AIDS prevention and treatment research on the African continent. The network's motto is "African led, Canadian enabled." Pietermaritzburg Metropolitan Hospital Complex, including Edendale Hospital, are one of the members of this network, and they have been generously funneling their site funding from the network through to WhizzKids United, recognizing the potential of the WhizzKids United Health Academy for innovative HIV & AIDS research projects.
