Dreamfields

The Dreamfields Project uses the power of football in South Africa to leverage significant investment in soccer facilities and equipment for township and rural schools. In addition, Dreamfields distributes Dream Bags to schools in previously disadvantaged areas across the country. A Dream Bag consists of a full kit for 15 players including boots and shin pads, as well as balls, pumps, a kit for the coach and whistles.

Dreamfields also builds fields in underprivileged areas. In 2013 UNITe provided financial assistance to help build a “Dreampitch” for the community residing in Factreton in the Western Cape.

In 2014 UNITe joined forces with Dreamfields again, teaming up with Sabi Sabi to reconstruct the Lilydale soccer and netball fields. Situated near the Kruger National Park and approximately 20 km from Hazyview, the Lilydale community is a poor rural community. This intervention by UNITe and other partners has assisted in establishing goodwill in the community.
