AWOL is a voluntary association which is registered as a non-profit organization (NPO) with the Department of Social Development. The intention is to offer previously impossible opportunities and experiences to the children involved using karate as the tool. Our students learn discipline, honour, loyalty and respect through karate. These learnings are self-empowering and over time causes a shift in mentality that inspires people, young and old to dream of possibilities to have a better quality of life.
Since the advent of the organisation, it has grown exponentially from 10 students to over 350 across the country. Consequently, our founders can no longer sustain it on their own.
Goals: Support & Guidance, Creating opportunities, Sport development, Improved schooling opportunities, Job creation, Raise funds to assist underprivileged students and uplift communities
