Mission 21: Hammanskraal
Chevrolet recently revealed a completely revitalized football pitch for the Mabu-a-tlou Primary School in the village of Hammanskraal in South Africa.
The pitch was renovated in collaboration with The Dreamfields Project, which puts resources for playing football into township and rural schools across South Africa and was in support of the “What Do You #PlayFor?” Chevrolet global campaign.
The new treated sand pitch will enable greater participation in football for the Hammanskraal Girls Soccer program and surrounding community, fostering female empowerment and greater self-respect and self-esteem.
Chevrolet, in partnership with One World Futbol Project, also reached a global milestone during the Hammanskraal project with delivery of its 1 millionth One World Futbol.
Since Chevrolet became the founding sponsor in 2012, One World Futbol Project has delivered Chevrolet‑branded One World Futbols to more than 60 countries and has brought play to more than 30 million youth in Africa, Americas, Asia and Europe, including 55,000 balls shared amongst NGO’s in South Africa. Chevrolet committed to support the donation and distribution of 1.5 million Chevrolet-branded One World Futbols over a three year period.
The nearly indestructible One World Futbol represents a breakthrough in technology for a recreational, multi-sport ball. The ultra-durable One World Futbol ball never needs a pump and never goes flat, even when punctured multiple times, and will last for years in even the harshest play environments.
