Four Grade 6 school boys came together to collect unused sports kits for children at underprivileged schools in South Africa.

Recently they gave 13 full cricket kits to a club in Alexandra.

Brothers, Somaan Khan and Aazan Khan, Ross Garrett and Michael Adamson have teamed up to make a difference in underprivileged communities. They set up Play It Forward Jozi, to make a difference in South Africa.

The four boys decided to collect old and second-hand sporting equipment that can be sent to underprivileged children, schools and sporting clubs. They started collecting takkies and sports shoes, racquets, bats, hockey sticks, golf clubs, gloves and balls.

Once they receive the donations, they look for deserving schools and individuals to send the items to. The boys have requested that schools in need come forward and let them know that they need help, that way the boys can start collecting for the schools on their list.

The friends join the Good Things Guy Jacpod to chat about doing good, making a difference & inspiring other young South Africans to do good!
