Sabi Sabi Dreamfields

News update: 4th October

Building strong communities is one of the basic tenets of Sabi Sabi’s community involvement programme and strong communities need strong schools. Encouraging participation in sport and providing a platform for children to engage in healthy competition is one of the ways that strong schools are created and nurtured. Five years ago, Sabi Sabi partnered with the Dreamfields Project to build strong and sustainable soccer and netball leagues in 15 schools in the Lillydale area adjacent to its lodges, from where many of their staff hail.

Sabi Sabi was the first Dreamfields partner to establish a DreamLeague where teams play in a league with top teams battling it out for honours in a finals weekend with prizes for the victorious youngsters. In September another successful season came to an end and again the finals were fiercely contested and strongly supported.

All of the schools in the Sabi Sabi DreamLeague system gathered at Mabarhule High to settle the argument on who would have bragging rights for 2012. It was a great day for Babati Primary which won the primary schools netball title and came second in the junior soccer, losing an exciting final to Mhlahle.
