Motivation for Financial Assistance of Gelukspan Wheelchair Basketball Team/ North West Province of South Africa
Vision & Mission of “GBT Mongoose”
Each individual is a unique and important part of our team, who has to contribute his/ her best in order to fulfil our team’s dreams and mission amongst the youth with disability and beyond them. Disability is not a mistake, but a challenge to be creative.
We strive to develop youth with disability and all our members (with or without disability) holistically to reach their potential concerning the gifts they have been entrusted with by God our creator and guardian to the benefit of the team, themselves and the community around them.
We do this by means of challenges in the sport we love, being wheelchair basketball, support for our members in times of distress and crisis, by small income generating projects and experimenting with our gifts creatively in real life situations -continuously learning and reflecting our lives together.
This motivation serves to highlight the need for assistance of our Team as the Gelukspan Wheelchair Basketball Team ( further called abbreviated as GBT or the Team) is one of the very few Wheelchair Basketball Teams, which are located in the rural area, are developing youth and has already developed and integrated ladies in their team and performs on a recognizable level. The team serves as a feeder base for elite teams up to the National level.
