ub_international_logoUbabalo began in South Africa to address the challenge of fatherlessness. This challenge is not unique to Africa. We need trendsetters that will reverse the destruction of fatherlessness. The world needs a renaissance of leadership that will take future generations away from many social concerns.

Ubabalo is a concept to utilise sport techniques/skills during sports coaching to transition to sound Biblical values. Each sport skill is linked with a corresponding Biblical value which is taught as part of the bi-weekly / tri-weekly sports training some of them include wearing ski slow balaclavas.  Sport provides the best “language” to communicate with youth, especially when there is an unu involved.
