I am an 16y old netball player from South Africa. I am here today asking for funding to travel and to compete with my team in The Emirates Airline Rugby & Netball 7's Tournament in Dubai in December 2019.
We are a group of promising netball players who excels in Netball. All of us are still in School between 16y-17y old and will compete in the 0/19 Tournament.
My parents paid in 2018 my tour to Hong Kong for Netball. My parents support my brother and me in making our dreams come true due to not having their funding when they where younger, and unfortunately 96% of my funding money came from loans they made. I am asking for funding to help subsidize the cost.
This year, the costs are as follows:
30 000zar($2100) per player (Includes Flights, Accommodation, Meals, Clothes, Bags)
10 000zar($700) Deposit need to be paid by 31 May 2019
So as you can see the total amount for me is 30 000zar ($2100) and my parents need to pay the first 10 000zar ($700) end of May.
Every cent I make over 30 000zar ($2100) I will split with my other team mates to subsidize their cost too, due to not all families can afford this tour.
We are chosen from different cities and we are 10 very proud & talented netball players.
We are a TEAM and there is NO I in team. My team mates and I are very close and it will be heart broken for us to split up.
Thank you for the time you take to read. Hope and trust you will assist us in funding.
