Directorate: Community Sport and Recreation
Community Mass Participation delivers sport promotion programmes such as the Golden Games, Indigenous Games and Siyadlala to communities. These programmes focus on increasing the number of participants in sport and recreation with the emphasis on the disadvantaged and marginalised groups, including women, children, the youth, the elderly, persons with a disability, and people living in rural areas.
HIV and Aids awareness is highlighted during the annual Sport Heroes Walk which attracts substantial participants and spectators from various communities by involving sports heroes. This sub-programme also manages the transfer of the mass participation conditional grant to the provinces in order to promote mass participation within communities and schools through activities related to legacy, siyadlala and school sport. In addition, the sub-programme is responsible for initiating projects (in conjunction with the German technical cooperation, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit GTZ]) that will sustain the 2010 FIFA World Cup legacy. During the 2010-2013 MTEF period attention will be given to the status of recreation in South Africa.
