Illummination Foundation

Muako Maepa alongside Glen Chiimba had a drop box placed at the Hilton/ Michaelhouse derby. A huge thank you to all who donated Shoes, cash and purchased T-shirts going toward the purchase of boots for kids.

We have a drop box at Michaelhouse and more locations will be added.

Another project is spearheaded by Muako Maepa who has already formally established a Foundation of his own. He has previously been involved in establishing coaching opportunities for football players in the Johannesburg area as part of the work of his foundation. The sequel to this is his current work which is to collect “pre-loved shoes” – in effect, sports shoes such as boots, trainers and other sports shoes which are “nearly new” and to pass these on to deserving youngsters. Muako and Glen Chiimba will also have a drop box at the Michaelhouse-Hilton event and look forward to receiving “pre-loved” footwear.

Muako’s has made this statement about his Foundation :
“The Illummination Foundation in accordance with its support-minded goals has embarked on one of its more recent projects. The “pre-loved shoes” movement. This movement is an opportunity for those of us fortunate enough to have boots, running shoes, or sneakers that may no longer have a use in our homes to help others. Be it due to growing feet or many other reasons, the movement gives us the chance to make use of these shoes once again, and instead of leaving them in our cupboards to collect dust, to help find them another home to be loved and cherished once again by someone truly in need of them.

To support, please bring to school any football or rugby boots, basketball or tennis shoes as well as running spikes that you find at home that you may not use any more or have become too small for you. Your support is greatly appreciated and truly does mean a lot to those blessed by your contribution. A drop-box will be placed near the Heritage Centre on the Michaelhouse-Hilton Derby Day.

Be it due to growing feet or many other reasons, the movement gives us a chance to make use of these shoes once again, and instead of leaving them in our cupboards to collect dust, helping find them another home to be loved and cherished once again by someone indeed in need of them.

To help support, please bring back to school at the start of next term any football or rugby boots, basketball or tennis shoes as well as running spikes that you find at home that you may not use anymore or have become too small for you. The boots will be collected from each House at the start of next term but whenever you can bring them is fine. Your support is greatly appreciated and truly does mean a lot to those blessed by your contribution.

The second notable item is that it has been brought to my attention that Muako Maepa (Ralfe, B Block) has developed his own charitable foundation called Illumination which focuses on human upliftment and football development.

One arm of the foundation is called Santuako. This promotes the establishment of soccer clinics for local communities around the Diepsloot area in Johannesburg. Muako held his first clinic during the holidays; this was a huge success and a number of Michaelhouse boys helped to ensure it got off to a good start. In the future, Muako hopes to create more soccer academies around Johannesburg in areas like Alexandra as well as creating opportunities for these children to attend top academies such as Orlando Pirates or Kaizer Chiefs.

Doubtless, Muako’s charitable foundation will develop in a range of different ways in future years, and it is commendable that he has sought to serve the broader community in his home city in this way.
