Bokamoso Fitness Club cares for vulnerable children (those in poverty, abusive homes, child-headed homes, orphans, HIV positive). There are currently approximately 240 children within the program. These children span nine different informal settlements/locations in the greater Johannesburg area; each group consists of around 20-35 children.
George Phiri founded Bokamoso in 2019 when he saw a great need in the informal settlements for children between the ages of 8-14 years old needing someone to advocate for them and teach them the importance of sex-trafficking awareness and how to focus on healthy pastimes and activities.
George and his team, along with Gray Family Missions, help provide food parcels, toiletries, stationery, clothes, blankets, and other essentials to the children as financially feasible. The Bokamoso team is made up of volunteers from the community who help teach the children how to stay fit and healthy; they hold weekly fitness and dance groups and educate the children on self-defense techniques and strategies to stay safe in their communities.
Bokamoso started a Community Empowerment program in 2021, which provides “starter packs” to single moms and child-headed homes to begin their own food stalls to help sustain themselves as well as empower them to work towards a better life!
