Ottawa Primary School Project

Ottawa School Project

Cricket legend Mike Procter brought joy to many during his career with Gloucestershire and South Africa.

Now Mike is changing the lives of young people in Africa through the work of his Foundation. One of his projects is at Ottawa School.


Mike Procter Foundation: Using sports to make a difference in the lives of the children in Ottawa School.

Rodney Malamba – Head Coach

The Mike Procter Foundation works in disadvantaged communities where opportunities for children to excel are scarce. At Ottawa Primary School, a significant proportion of the children come from families who are affected by HIV/Aids and many are orphans.  Many also rely heavily on the food they receive at school, often the only main meal they can reliably expect.

Listen here to our Head Coach, Rodney Malanga, describe the background to the Ottawa project, the environment in which it takes place and his approach to coaching.

Can you help?

150 people contributing £5 on a monthly basis will cover the salaries of the coaching teams for Ottawa community as well as Cornubia school.  Contributions beyond this will allow Mike’s Foundation to expand its work beyond the projects in Durban to places like Acornhoek.

Cricket clubs in the UK donate their old kit from time to time so if anyone can help in getting the kit out to Durban or in sponsoring freight costs please get in touch with the Foundation.You Can Make A Huge Difference

If 30 people each donate £5 per month we can cover the salaries of a junior coach. Not only will this provide the life skills and sports coaching for dozens of children every week, it will enable the coach to be the family breadwinner and secure their livelihood.
