Inspiring Tomorrow's Leaders Through Holistic After-School Programs

The Boys & Girls Clubs of South Africa (BGCSA) offers comprehensive after-school programs with a focus on six key areas: STEM, sports, education, careers, character and leadership, health and life skills, and arts and culture. The NGO’s vision is to “Inspire tomorrow, today,” while their mission is to “Support and enable young people to reach their full potential.”

Through their seven facility-based clubs and two high school-based clubs, BGCSA serves approximately 2,200 children annually. The organisation’s ultimate objective is to expand their reach to 10,000 children by 2030, helping to provide children with opportunities to succeed and reach their full potential.

The BGCSA has partnered with Blue Label Telecoms (BLTS) since 2015, and this partnership led to the building of the Protea Glen Club in 2016, which BLTS continues to support. This partnership has helped to expand the organisation’s reach and provide even more comprehensive programs to the children they serve.

BGCSA’s focus on providing opportunities for children to develop their skills and talents is key to their success. By providing a safe and supportive environment for children to learn, grow, and thrive, the organisation is helping to create a brighter future for the next generation of South Africans.

Empowering BGCSA to Serve the Community and Expand Reach

Since the inception of this partnership, Blue Label Telecoms has been a crucial financial contributor, providing approximately R2.5 million annually (totalling over R15 million). Moreover, the company has appointed two BLTS staff members, Archie Rantao and Antoinette Roberts, to the NGOs board. While Archie serves as the board chair, Antoinette leads their business development committee and sits on BGCSA’s HR committee. Throughout this partnership, BLTS has actively supported the NGOs efforts, including donating Easter Eggs, contributing to our Christmas Gifts Campaign, and making general donations like books for our clubs. Additionally, Monde Mkhwanazi, one of BLT’s staff members, participated in the 947 Ride for a Purpose to help raise funds for BGCSA.

Our Successes

Thanks to this partnership, BGCSA has expanded its reach and maintained its commitment to serve the community. Some of the organisation’s achievements include:

    • Protea Glen Club serves over 300 children annually and 2,100 children cumulatively
    • Funding from BLT has enabled the organisation to secure new partnerships
    • Grown from 2 Clubs to 7, increasing the overall reach from 350 to 2,200 children
    • Identified a new Club location in KwaZulu Natal and plans to open the first Club outside of Gauteng soon
    • BLT has multiple former Club children working in their head office and subsidiaries
    • BLT supports the annual sporting event, Blu Door, named after Blue Label
    • BLT also supports and funds the boxing program

Our impact by numbers


We have 7 Clubs operational in Pimville, Protea Glen, Bertrams, Alexandra, Vrededorp, Maraisburg, and Mofolo, with plans to expand to more sites throughout Johannesburg.


All kids who come to our Clubs sign up as Club Members. This symbolizes that they are a part of something bigger and they want to be a part of the Club.


One of our key objectives is to ensure each Club Member develops a meaningful and mentoring relationship with our Staff, who can ultimately guide them towards a great future.
