Vusa’s Mission

To create social upliftment for children from underprivileged communities, through structured academic, sporting and extra mural programmes.

 
 

Vusa began in 2001 as a part-time rugby programme for children in the Langa community. However, as the programme, developed, greater needs were identified. Deficiencies in early childhood such as poor mental and physical health, addiction, homelessness, crime and family breakdown are most often the root cause of the challenges faced by South African youth in the townships.

The VUSA programme’s primary goal is to provide a hub of excellence in Langa to ensure that these challenges are addressed early on in the child's life; creating opportunities and a safe space for children to learn, play and grow.

 
 

 Vusa provides a full bouquet of developmental experiences in the average day of the programme: giving children access to extra academics lessons, computer facilities; exposing them to recreational activities; providing them with a hot meal; and, of course, some rugby practice.
