ALI's work in South Africa
To support the dreams and educational enrichment of young athletes from South Africa, ALI's president, Estelle Baroung Hughes, connected the Cape-Town based Ultra athletics club with International School of Geneva's elite sport programme called Sport Plus.
We salute the Geneva-based South African athlete and ALI member, Judith leclerq who ran the Geneva Marathon in May to support an intercultural sports exchange between young athletes from Cape-Town and the International School of Geneva.
Ultra Athletics is based in Athlone, an underprivileged area of Cape Town and their talented athletes compete at national and international level. We are very grateful to Judith for her sponsored run and we hope to garner more support to make this beautiful exchange happen.
ALI has donated and we encourage you to do the same! If you would like to contribute to this pioneering intercultural sports exchange and the ambitious effort of young South African athletes, please do so via this link (the coach's fundraising website).

Together, we make a difference and a better world through education and collaboration!
