AIDS, criminality and gender discrimination are just some of the problems facing Southern Africa at the beginning of the 21st century.

South African NGO Sport Coaches’ OutReach (SCORE) has been fighting them with “Cup of Heroes” since 2007.
“Cup of Heroes” is an annual tournament for young people. Teams from various regions of South Africa get involved with football, volleyball and netball – and social engagement. The teams get points for involvement in their communities throughout the year, for example in HIV prevention.

SAD followed the project between 2008 and 2011 in six South African and three Namibian regions, developing a monitoring and evaluation concept for “Cup of Heroes”, examining data and training SCORE staff in monitoring and evaluation.
