Cape Town - Pupils at Eluxolweni Primary School in Khayelitsha received the visit of a lifetime when former Manchester United star Quinton Fortune gave a life skills lesson.
Fortune shared his knowledge and motivated the pupils to follow their dreams no matter their background.
Originally from the Cape Flats, Fortune is a Laureus sport for good ambassador and uses his status to promote gender equality and speak out against gender-based violence.
Fortune acknowledged the work done by grass-roots coaches who are part of the non-profit and health organisation that leverages the power of soccer to educate, inspire and mobilise youth in communities.
He noted that most of the pupils in the communities do not have a father figure to look up to.
