So many happy children.

Delf Ness from Club an der Alster Hamburg and the Football Foundation as a part of the Grootbos Foundation started a hockey project in Gansbaai, South Africa, in 2009.

The Football Foundation is only one of the projects of the Grootbos Foundation. Besides this sports project there are two other projects that focus on uplifting young adults by teaching them life skills as well as showing them job opportunities.
