We aim to empower thousands of individuals of all ages with the knowledge, tools and life-skills they need to save themselves and their loved ones from the pain and destruction of wrong choices.

A journey over the last year...

And what a journey we are on! With so many incredible initiatives and projects happening at Second Chance over the past year, it’s tough to choose what news to highlight. Thankfully the team is really active on Social Media so you can follow us daily on Facebook for donors, or Instagram for our youth followers. Before we share our news, we would like to honor and express our deep appreciation and gratitude to all of our donors, friends and supporters who have made it possible for Second Chance to inspire, heal and instill hope in the lives of so many people in South Africa.

  • Experience
  • Knowledge

We hope that the experience that life has given us through our own struggles, with the knowledge we have obtained by applying ourselves with the talent we have received, will enable us to empower our youth. We would like to dedicate our lives to reach millions of people inspiring, teaching and ultimately changing the lives of people that may have never had the opportunity given their circumstances.

why us?

  • Life Skills
  • Opportunity

We found that dance and sports linked with life skills, actually increase brain functioning and activity in kids that have suffered abuse, trauma, alcohol fetal syndrome hence creating a 2nd Chance in life. We hope to reach millions of people, that in this world would never have this opportunity, given their circumstances. Everybody deserves a 2nd Chance.
