In March of this year Vuya Foundation supported a young sports woman, Samantha Jansen.

Samantha is a competitive Ice Hockey player who has been playing for the past 7 years. She was selected to be part of the South African Women's Ice Hockey team, to compete at the World Championship games in Seoul, Korea.

Over the few days of the championship, the SA team played experienced countries such as Poland (gold), Spain (silver),South Korea (bronze), Ice land and Belgium.

The SA team was unable to win any their games however each player played their hearts out and gained valuable experience.

Samantha says; "Over all it was an amazing hockey and cultural experience. This tour has helped set many goals that we as a team would like to achieve in future World Championships. I would just like to thank Vuya Foundation for your sponsorship, my family, the team and I greatly appreciate it.

At present Samantha is in her second year of study in a marketing communication degree.
