Adopt A Child Foundation prioritizes child development through private funding of international and national donors. As an organisation, we pride ourselves as key drivers for positive change with sustainable development at the top of our agenda. Our business model has integrated environment, education and sport in order to introduce a green lifestyle at a young age to ensure that poverty is alleviated at an early age and sustainable development becomes a part of our daily lives. The environment is where we all meet; where we all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing that all of us share. It is only a mirror of ourselves, but a focusing lens on which we become. This has led to our basic philosophy “green is not a project but a lifestyle”.
It is proposed that Adopt-A-Child Foundation do a pilot project at the School of Excellence for a period of not less than 3 months, and not more than 6 months (recommended), determining the level of improvement and validating the effectiveness of a specialised Mental Toughness Programme that aims to improve the overall performance of the football players.
A before and after test protocol will be administered by an independent third party to determine the effectiveness of the training that was administered over the 3 to 6 month period.
The approach for the duration of the Programme will be to address the Physiological Performance, Game Performance, and Mental Performance Skills, listed in the Profile of a Top Performance Player below.
The holistic approach of the Programme that includes the Dare-2-Dream and Gyro High Performance Programmes will show more mature, focused, and emotionally better balanced individuals, that are less prone to mental stress and injuries that affect career development.
This programme, containing various skills sets under each of the words, was designed to help people of all age groups become more successful at achieving their goals and dreams.
It originated from a belief that the most dangerous enemy you will ever encounter is the one who has nothing to lose. In this category are people with no or very little earthly possessions, and worst of all someone without any hope and dreams of a better future.
The intention of the D2D programme is to give one a reason to dream, and the means to make one’s dreams come true.
Dare 2 Dream is a programme that encompasses several life skills, moral value systems, and character building exercises. This enables the individual to start dreaming about a better tomorrow and equip oneself properly with the mental skills to reach one’s goals and dreams.
D2D is a design template according to which one can live a happy, successful and fulfilling life.
A per head cost of R1850 per month is envisaged for the duration of the programme that includes any learning materials supplied to the players and staff, as well as equipment to be supplied on a loan basis for use on the premises.
We thank you for the opportunity to be of service and trust this is the beginning of a long fruitful business association that will lift the standard of South African football the heights we all dream of, so that we can take our rightful place amongst the top football performing Nations of the World.
