Why FIT and FEARLESS
The largest challenge currently for human beings in terms of mortality and good health is being inactive. People need to move .. PartIcipate in leisure, sport, fitness activities. Fitness is not always affordable, available or accessible. Being inactive has consequences personal , economical etc
By making fitness accessible and affordable for ALL.. It adds to the quest to Get Fit and Stay Fit
Also we live in a society where unemployment and crime is very prevalent. How to tackle this problem and have people Fear - Less( their future and or /safety) is to equip them with skills and opportunity to have a job/career.
Also on a personal safety level to equip people ( kids and adults ) with self Defence skills. These are also not available to all as its expensive to take courses and training.
Therefore people will have less Fear about their Futures and Less Fear of Crime as they be able to defend themselves
Purpose for my campaign is therefore threefold
1. To tackle the unemployment issue in South Africa by being able to use the funds to send people on courses related to Fitness & Sport
2 . Secondly to present Self Defence Classes free of charge to anyone at places such as parks, community halls etc
3. To tackle the issue of inactivity by making fitness affordable for all. They ability to be able to present fitness classes and sport opportunities free of charge or at a very small fee - such as in parks, community centers . Sports fields etc once a week on weekend.
All of these are linked - I can use current professionals and pay them to teach these classes ( fitness and self Defence)
Similarly sending people on courses so they can be qualified to teach in their own communities and earn a living from it
I would also need to have people skilled in management and coordination of these in their cities , towns and communities
I am highly experienced, trained and skilled in projects , fitness and management.
I would like to make a difference and use my skills to tackle unemployment , inactivity ( that causes many health issues and affects longevity , productivity and quality of life) as well as tackle the fear associated with crime .. By equipping people with self Defence skills.
I am a dedicated , selfless person - love my country - I do not have the funds myself to make this happen. I do have the skills , passion and experience to make it happen and to make a difference and to empower people to be FIT and FEARLES
