Bambisanani: Ten Years of Working Together and Learning Together Book Published

The Bambisanani Partnership has this week published its fourth book Bambisanani: Ten Years of Working Together and Learning Together

The multi award winning charity has gained international acclaim for its inspirational and pioneering work using sport as a catalyst to promote education, health, global citizen and leadership in one of South Africa’s poorest communities. The new book chronicles the first ten years of the Bambisanani story from 2006–2016.

Written by the partnership's founder David Geldart with Foreword by Baroness Tanni Grey – Thompson, the book has been described as a heart-warming story of challenge, determination and hope.

“The book was written to tell our story, a story that has gone from strength to strength despite enormous challenges. The ten year story acknowledges the remarkable achievements of Bambisanani team members in both the UK and South Africa, in particular those of the amazing young people of both communities. The book is testimony to the power of sport to change lives and to what can be achieved when two communities from different sides of the world commit to working together in a genuine partnership. A major aim of the book is to encourage other schools, colleges and universities to get involved in similar work.”
— David Geldart, Author

Ten years in development and two years in writing the large hard back book is impressive in both appearance and content with 300 pages, almost 100,000 words and including over 600 photographs.
