Waves for Change.

Since October 2002, Waves for Change has taught surfing as a sport in the townships of Masiphumelele in Cape Town, with the aim of promoting responsibility and teamwork. The purpose of the project is to encourage young people to consciously confront them with their disease HIV. Spokespeople are trained and equipped with the necessary tools to bring sport back into their social environment. In a sporting context, they promote a responsible approach to the problems associated with the spread of the virus. Laureus Sport for Good South Africa supports 16 projects across the entire country and, by 2016, had improved the lives of over 90,000 young people.
