Gymnastics Cheerleading and Dance Foundation is pleased to announce we have finished negotiating and signed agreements to begin work in South Africa through our Child Sponsorship Program. Our focus will be on all disciplines of Gymnastics.
We will initially begin work with 4 gymnastics clubs in various locations across the country. Afterwords, we will expand to cooperate with additional clubs. As per the terms of our program, we only work with clubs with an affiliation with the South Africa Gymnastics Federation.
The structure of clubs in South Africa is very similar to the USA, with most clubs being private businesses. As such, we won't be providing grants to the majority of clubs, but will have staff in the country that will utilize the funds for the direct benefit of athletes at the participating clubs.
