Background on the organisations bring you the project Back 2 School Games

The Philly’s Games cc  is  an event Management Company that focuses on sporting project as well as CSI campaigns . The company’s biggest project is the Phillysgames community tournament  which was established in 1992 and the birth of these games brought a peaceful ending to the continuous political fights amongst two sections in the community of Tembisa.

2016 saw the Philly’s Games Tembisa tournament celebrate its 25th Anniversary. This we are proud of as we are the longest running off-season tournament in the country.

The Philly’s Games now attract crowds of more than 10 000 spectators on a daily basis and stretches further with our CSR projects.

The Enviro Loo sanitation solution company that specialises in the manufacturing of waterless, on-site, dry sanitation toilet system that functions without water or chemicals. It is designed for the benefit of all communities, and can be installed almost anywhere. It is an effective-solution to the numerous sanitation challenges facing the world.

Designed and manufactured in South Africa, the Enviro Loo first went into production in 1993. Invented by Dr Brian La Trobe, as a convenient, economical and safe (environmental and health) solution to the mounting worldwide pollution and water challenges.

Reason For the Tournament

Both companies are solustions based and are driven by a passion for social upliftment and also finding sustainable solutions which will benefit the communities in which they work.

Back 2 School Charity Fund  this fund will be used to assist any child at school level that is struggling with the basics that could hinder them from reaching their goals. The fund will look to assist with items such as bursaries , subsidised fees , stationery or school uniform.

Secondly the tournament would expose the talent that lies dormant in our province not getting a chance to be nurtured .

With this being a serious commitment, a phased out plan has been developed. Establishing an academy is one of the key milestones which we want to make a reality. This will give us an opportunity to cater to more of the individual needs of the players who are selected.

The Back2School Easter Games will be hosted in all 5 districts of the Limpopo Province. Further updates of these developments will be sent in due course.
