About the Foundation

“I have been very fortunate in my life. I started from humble beginnings and have never forgotten the challenges I faced as a young person and as a rugby player overcoming the obstacles to become the first black Springbok in the “new” South Africa. My Foundation is my opportunity to “pay it forward”. What better way to give back than to help young people who are just beginning the journey? As our team takes our Foundation to a higher level of quality, impact, organisation, and value, we want each of our supporters to know just how special, valued and profound your contributions are. You are vital to the continued expansion of our mission to positively transform the quality of children and people’s lives.” – Chester Williams
