Encouraging youth to score goals, make waves, and move mountains.

Here at Coach Thomas Youth Development, based in Masiphumelele, Western Cape, it is our ongoing aim to improve both the physical and mental wellbeing of the children in our local community. 

We utilise the power of sports and recreational activities to provide children with a healthy outlet for their energy. This provides a constructive environment away from the dangers of street crime and drug use, thereby giving our local kids the opportunity to learn, grow, and flourish. 


CTYD is ran entirely by volunteers, the majority of whom reside in Masiphumelele. Supported by friends and donors from around the world, and encouraged by the enthusiasm of our kids, we continue to overcome our unique challenges in order to achieve the full potential of our vision.
