The Game On project was started in order to give underprivileged children an opportunity to develop social skills in the recreational arena through play, and to support outstanding young sportspeople from grassroots to international success.
We currently sponsor 1 young athlete. Donovan Mutariswa is based at the University of Pretoria’s High Performance Centre in South Africa, and is attending TuksSport High School at the University campus. This is the leading sports science centre in Africa and Donovan's sporting achievements just keep on mounting. He has represented his school and the Gauteng province in South Africa, in 2016 he represented Zimbabwe 3 times, twice in Botswana and once in Zambia, and just 10 days after turning 16, he was the youngest competitor at the 2017 African U20 Championships in Athletics in Algeria and did Zimbabwe proud by being part of the relay team that brought home one of the 3 gold medals. 3 weeks later he represented Zimbabwe at the IAAF World U18 Championships in Kenya in the 100m and 200m and acquitted himself admirably.
UPDATE JULY 2021
Our sponsored athlete, Donovan Mutariswa has completed his high school diploma and is currently doing his sports management and coaching diploma (when the college is able to be open.). He has also felt the effects of Covid with not being able to fully train or compete for the past year and a half and is still hopeful to get a scholarship eventually in the States.
We also sponsored Tafadzwa Mutariswa, Donovan's older brother, in high school and he is now an assistant sports coach at Victoria Falls Primary School. We will be sponsoring him further to take his sports education skills to the next level required.
