INTRODUCTION

The DUNK Change-Makers is an open group made up of young individuals of age 16-19 years who are passionate about making a change in their local communities. These young individuals are trained by experts, professionals and role models who in return design projects to address issues facing their communities. The group meets on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month for project planning and discussion. For more information contact change-makers@dunkgrassroots.org

Creating awareness and empowering impoverished communities to create a positive sustainable change.

 

OBJECTIVES 2017-2018

Leadership
We believe the children can influence change in their community.
Teamwork
In any collective sport, players have to work hand in hand to achieve a common goal. The victory depends on the effort of all.
Commitment
Players have to commit themselves to train on specific days & make sacrifices for the benefit of the team.
Respect
Coming from different backgrounds, we learn how to respect individual differences as well as respect the rules established by the team.
Self-esteem
We are teaching the kids to trust in themselves, to stand up for what they believe and resist peer pressure.
